2019 is a big year for Pride. June 28th marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots, the starting point of the modern U.S. LGBTQ+ rights movement. Much of the progress made in the legal, social and cultural acceptance and inclusion of LGBTQ+ people in the last five decades can be traced directly back to Stonewall. We’re proud to be in our third year of partnership with The Stonewall Inn Gives Back Initiative (SIGBI), which leverages Stonewall’s historical significance to help underserved LGBTQ+ communities, as we observe this momentous LGBTQ+ 50th anniversary.
Along for the (P)ride
On June 28th, we’ll be matching the cost of all drinks purchased at the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village on the 50th anniversary of the historic 1969 demonstrations with a donation to the Stonewall Inn Gives Back Initiative (SIGBI) .
JetPride, our crewmember resource group for LGBTQ+ crewmembers and allies, will be loudly and proudly present at events across the country, including Boston, Fort Lauderdale, Salt Lake City, Long Beach, Orlando, New York City’s Pride parades and more, and we’ll be featuring information about each city’s LGBTQ+ history on our feeds throughout the month.
On top of that, we’ve got a fabulous playlist featuring iconic songs by LGBTQ+ artists and allies that we’ll be playing in JFK’S Terminal 5 for the next few weeks, plus a few more surprises we can’t spill the tea on yet.
Join us as we celebrate 50 years of #NonstopPride
