Tituss Burgess Is Hosting A 'Pride Flight' On Virgin Airlines, Complete With An All-LGBT Crew ❤️

By Dennis Matthew Livesey

Mark your calenders, book your tickets, and get ready to climb aboard what promises to be the fiercest flight in the friendly skies. 

On Tuesday, Virgin Atlantic announced the first ever "Pride Flight", a one-off trip from London to New York staffed entirely by LGBT+ pilots and cabin crew, set to arrive in New York just in time for World Pride 2019.

In celebration of queer culture, the six-hour flight won't be your typical trip from point A to point B. Along with live performances and special guests appearances, the flight will include a DJ, Judy Garland singalong, on-board speed dating, and Drag Queen Bingo. 

All the festivities will be hosted by Broadway musical actor and star of Netflix's Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Tituss Burgess. 

According to Burgess, now more than ever, is the time for celebrations like Pride Flight.

 "At a time when we're seeing the rights of minority groups under threat, it is more important than ever  we stand up and make our voices heard." 
"The  LGBT community has made enormous strides over the last 50 years, and  I'm so proud to partner with Virgin Holidays and Virgin Atlantic to mark this occasion in style and celebrate the hard-won freedoms from those who came before us."
