In honour of World Pride 2019 in New York next June, Virgin Atlantic have chosen to commemorate the 50th anniversary of New York City’s Stonewall Uprising of ‘69 by organising the UK’s first ever “Pride Flight”. This one-off flight will operate from London to Newark on Friday 28th June 2019.
Hosting the event will be Tituss Burgess, the Broadway musical actor and star of the hit Netflix show Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. It will be staffed entirely by LGBT+ pilots and cabin crew and will celebrate queer culture with special in-flight entertainment including a DJ, Drag Queen Bingo, Judy Garland singalong and inter-seat speed dating.
A portion of ticket sales from the flight will be donated to The Attitude Foundation to advance community Pride initiatives here in the UK – and further fundraising and raffles will take place on board.
This 38,000 feet above the ground celebration packed full of special guests and live performances truly will be a flight to remember!
