JetBlue sponsors Long Beach Lesbian & Gay Pride

This past weekend we sponsored Long Beach Lesbian & Gay Pride, the third-largest pride celebration in America, for the fifth straight year. This two-day festival attracts over 75,000 people and is one of California’s largest annual events.

Crewmembers were on hand to promote JetBlue and our 31 daily flights from Long Beach (including our newest destination, Anchorage). Thanks for coming out to support JetBlue at this major community event!

    We are organizing the first ever “Gay Eco Week” in Costa Rica, specifically Playa Junquillal, Guanacaste, Costa Rica. Our theme is “The Green Party”, which is very appropriate because the event begins on 11/11/11 and is just after the rainy, or “Green”, season. Our slogan is: “Miami may have the White Party, and Montreal may have the Black & Blue Party, but only Playa Junquillal Costa Rica has…. THE GREEN PARTY!!”
    Our company has been providing Diversity & Inclusion Training for 12 years. Event planning and fundraising is one component of our business. My husband and I (partners in life and business) have been traveling Costa Rica for 10 years. After 7 years we finally invested in our home in Playa Junquillal, CR. Our goal with the Green Party is to make very gay friendly Playa Junquillal an Eco-travel destination for LGBT people from across the globe. We are aware of jetBlue’s new promotion for direct flights from JFK Airport in New York to Liberia (LIR) International Airport in Liberia, Guanacaste, Costa Rica. This newly expanded airport is less than 1 hour from Playa Junquillal! We thought this would be a great partnership to promote the Green Party, as well as your new travel options for these direct flights to Liberia. I believe the kick-off of your new direct flights begins during, or just after, our event. Perhaps there is a way to move the date up to 11/11/11?? Exciting date to commence! If that is not possible, perhaps you could offer flights into San Jose, but departing out of Liberia as our event ends on 11/20/11, which is believe is after your kick-off.
    We would also like to work with your Gay & Lesbian ERG/Affinity Group. Perhaps they would like to become involved as they did for the Long Beach Lesbian & Gay Pride event.
    Please review our website for additional details on the event:
