LGBT Outreach

At Southwest, we support the LGBT Community, because we are the LGBT Community

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), and the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC). 

To learn more about our support of the LGBT community, please continue to navigate through our page. Visit often to stay up to date on our newest information, community partnerships, and upcoming events. We look forward to welcoming you onboard soon.
