More than 1,500 New Yorkers gathered today in Manhattan to mourn the death of a 32 year-old gay man, who was shot down on Friday just blocks away from the historic Stonewall Inn in an apparent act of anti-gay bias.
Delta Sky Magazine stands up for equality in new GLAAD ad
Millions of travelers from all across the globe will learn about the need for vital LGBT-inclusive workplace protections with the release of a new full-page ad appearing in this month’s issue of ‘Delta Sky Magazine.’
The ad reads in part: “Today, in 29 states, a person can be fired from their job simply for being lesbian, gay or bisexual. In 34 states, a person can be fired from their job simply for being transgender.”
Readers are directed to glaad.org to learn more about how they can support the LGBT community.
Delta Sky is the world’s most-read onboard magazine with a circulation of over 5 million and introduces readers to the people, places and subjects that define our ever-evolving world. The ad, which was created by GLAAD, also commends Delta for its ongoing commitment to equality.
Delta Air Lines was designated as one of HRC’s ‘Best Places to Work’ for LGBT employees in 2011, and continues to earn near-perfect scores on HRC’s Corporate Equality Index.
Delta Air Lines is also the Local Presenting Partner of the GLAAD Media Awards in New York, as well as the GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles. (For a complete list of nominees and ticket information, click here.)
GLAAD thanks Delta for its continued support of LGBT employees and customers!
