LGBT Outreach

At Southwest Airlines, we take pride in our outreach and commitment to the LGBT community. We have community partnerships with a variety of local and national organizations who are dedicated to LGBT causes and initiatives. As an example, we are the official airline of the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), the Gay-Straight Alliance Network (GSA), the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC), and the National Gay & Lesbian Task Force National Conference on LGBT Equality: Creating Change.

Gay-Straight Alliance Network (GSA)

GSA is a youth leadership organization that connects school-based Gay-Straight Alliances (GSAs) to one another and community resources through peer support, leadership development, and training. GSA Network was founded in 1998 to empower youth activists to start Gay-Straight Alliance clubs to fight homophobia and transphobia in schools. GSA Network began working with 40 GSA clubs in the San Francisco Bay Area during the 1998-99 school year. The organization quickly expanded and by 2001 GSA Network became a statewide organization. By 2005, GSA Network began operating programs nationally.
