Virgin Airlines Launches ‘Queer’ Uniforms, Woke Ticketing Initiative No One Asked For
The airline Virgin Atlantic is making headlines for its latest queer uniforms and ticketing initiative.
It also updated its gender identity policy to allow cabin crew, pilots and ground team to choose their uniforms based on which ones “best represents them.”
Regardless of the employee’s gender, gender identity or gender expression.
From The Post Millennial:
The airline, which disclosed a $916-million loss in 2021, believes offering its staff “a fluid approach to its red and burgundy uniforms” cements its position as “the most inclusive airline in the skies.”

Who knows what gender identity has to do with airlines. But that hasn’t stopped Virgin Atlantic from promoting pronoun badges for all its staff and passengers.
“I just want to be handed a gin and tonic. I don’t want all this prancing and I don’t want to know your pronouns. I don’t care what your pronouns are!” said comedian Leo Kearse on GB News.

According to the airline, “the badges are available from today – just ask for your preferred badge at the check in desk or in the Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse.”
“Virgin Atlantic has also updated its ticketing system and customers holding a passport with gender neutral gender markers will now be able to select U or X gender codes on their booking, and use the gender-neutral title, Mx,” the statement continued.
In the promotional video about these changes released by Virgin Atlantic, there are a group of TV celebrities, LGBTQ activists, and influencers who are prancing about in their choice of uniform.
“Virgin Atlantic is allowing male cabin crew and pilots to wear skirts and female staff to wear trousers. I highly doubt there was significant demand for this change to happen,” tweeted Darren Grimes.
“It’s nothing more than corporate virtue signalling and attention seeking,”

More from The Post Millennial:
In 2019, Virgin Atlantic staged a “queer flight” between New York and London that was “Staffed entirely by LGBT+ pilots and cabin crew.” The airline said “the flight will be a true celebration of queer culture 38,000ft above the Atlantic.” There was an “on board DJ, Drag-Queen Bingo, Judy Garland singalong, inter-seat speed dating and special in-flight entertainment.” It was intended to “celebrate World Pride 2019.”
So who asked for all this gender inclusivity? Likely not Virgin Atlantic’s customers. As all the support for these new initiatives are seemingly coming from activists and the LGBTQ community.
