Southwest Airlines Recognizes Gay Pride Month In June And All Year Long

DALLAS, June 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Southwest Airlines (NYSE: LUV) proudly shows its dedication to the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender) community through its recognition of Gay Pride Month in June and its support of LGBT-focused community partnerships throughout the year. 

"Southwest Airlines has a unique Culture based on respect, recognizing the value of all our Employees, the importance of our Communities, and dedicated service to our Customers," said Ellen Torbert, Southwest Airlines' Vice President of Diversity and Inclusion.  "We enjoy the opportunity to recognize Gay Pride Month each June, but our commitment to the LGBT community isn't just a month-long celebration.  We give back to the LGBT community throughout the year through our ongoing community partnerships."

Jan. 29 - Feb. 2 | National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, the 26th National Conference on LGBT Equality: Creating Change, Houston

Southwest Airlines was recognized with the 2014 Corporate Leadership Award at Creating Change. The honor comes as a result of the financial and in-kind support Southwest provided as both the Official Airline of Creating Change and as one of the Task Force's national corporate partners. 

March 11-13 | Out & Equal, Momentum, San Francisco

Southwest Airlines was a sponsor for Momentum, the Annual Out & Equal Leadership Celebration, which celebrates advances in workplace equality and the individuals and organizations who take the lead on fundamental issues of equal rights, both in and out of the workplace.
