Virgin's All-LGBTQ Flight Includes Drag Queens and a Judy Sing-Along


Virgin Atlantic airlines is celebrating Pride 2019 in style with the world’s first-ever (known) flight staffed entirely by LGBTQ people that will fly from London’s Heathrow Airport to New York City for World Pride in June of next year, according to Pink News.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt star Tituss Burgess will host what Virgin is hailing as “Pride Flight,” which will include an in-flight DJ, Drag Queen Bingo, and a Judy Garland sing-along.

“We take our commitments to diversity and inclusion seriously, but you can rest assured we have a lot of fun along the way,” said Mark Anderson, global LGBT lead for Virgin Group and executive vice president at Virgin Atlantic.

He added that Pride Flight would be “a show-stopping, groundbreaking, one-of-a-kind experience.”

Prices for the spectacularly gay event begin at £380 (about $500), but there are holiday packages available that include accommodations at a New York-based hotel that begin at £699 ($923), according to Pink News.

Pride Flight will coincide with the 50th anniversary of the 1969 Stonewall riots, which kick-started the modern LGBTQ rights movement.
