George Rogers, a building surveyor, thought he’d booked a totally standard flight after spending a few weeks partying in Mexico, Colombia and Costa Rica. But he actually booked a seat on Qantas’ WorldPride flight which was made to bring LGBT+ people from the US to Australia for a 17-day festival.
“I had absolutely no idea it was a WorldPride flight. He told news.com.au.
“It dawned on me when check-in opened and I saw a lot of ‘colourful’ people and pride flags.” Then he was directed to Qantas First Lounge at LAX where drag Queen’s handed round rainbow flags and hats as well as free drinks.
When George boarded the flight the party continued as Quantas’ own drag queens flight attendants.
He also got to play drag bingo, take a make-up class and were given free beauty swag bags.
Rogers describes himself as an ally to the community and was “thrilled” by the happy mistake that resulted in him being on the flight. “I ended up on the gayest flight ever and I absolutely loved it,” he added.
