Michael G. is a black, queer, nonbinary bartender in the tiny, historic town of McCarthy, Alaska. The town has less than 200 people during the busy summer months. Located in the heart of Wrangell-St. Elias National Park, it's the last community to exist inside a U.S. national park. Michael's dealt with loneliness, microaggressions, and direct homophobic attacks, but has now grown to love the town.
