Obviously there's definitely more gay people there than the average bar, but some cities I've noticed straight people aren't as comfortable at gay bars as we are in Anchorage. I lived in Denver for 3 years and this ultra liberal activist type woman in my A&P class asked me to go to a drag show at a gay bar with her once. Then she was shocked, “I can't believe you Kelli are willing to go to a gay bar.” Like she was happy about it haha, but I have no idea why she was so shocked.I'm pretty sure the prejudice is worse in Denver and the community much less integrated.You can also look for friends and just hang out and be a part of the community here. Pink Sofa is a great place for women to meet each other.
Because in Anchorage everyone I know would go to Mad Myrnas.Lol Anyone who knows me in Anchorage, AK would just burst out laughing hearing someone say this to me.

It's not much to look at, but it makes up for that in character, great people and great music. It's overall probably my favorite Anchorage bar.
They have some of the best bartenders, best place to dance, safest place to be drunk. I also like that Mad Myrnas will always have gay/straight/trans/bi people hanging out together.
And we even have a free trial so you can try it out and see what you think before you go any further. My own journey is a long story - ask me about it sometime, if you see me online - but I realized early on how difficult it was for lesbians to meet each other.
It was frustrating, feeling like I just couldn't find anyone I liked... Support groups and lesbian communities were not well-publicized, and hard to find unless you knew who to talk to.
If you want to be seen as a butch lesbian, there are ways you can do so.
specifically lesbian culture, not LGBT culture as a whole.
It's known as an older man gay bar, it's just a sit down place.
