Pride month is here! #FlyWithPride with these virtual backgrounds

This year, we’re reimagining Pride in a whole new way by virtually celebrating throughout the entire month. There will be countless opportunities for you to get involved and show how you #FlyWithPride – all from the comfort of your home.

“We may not be able to celebrate Pride in-person this year, but that won’t stop us from showing the LGBTQ community – as well as communities of color – our love and support as we stand together in solidarity during these trying times,” said Karen Wilkins-Mickey, director of diversity & inclusion. “As we watch the protests around the country unfold, it is a reminder that Pride parades started as protests led by trans people of color and they were the catalyst for why we have LGBTQ+ rights today. The LGBTQ+ community is made up of an intersectionality of people, so it is vital we stand in solidarity with black Americans and other communities of color. While we celebrate Pride month, we remember and honor those who fought before us and continue the conversations of equality.”
