They have released a statement to discuss what happened.
Despite some incorrect reports, Leisha Hailey’s ex-girlfriend Nina Garduno was not present or involved.
We take full responsibility for getting verbally upset with the flight attendant after being told it was a “family airline.” We were never told the reason the flight attendant approached us, we were only scolded that we “needed to be aware that Southwest Airlines was a family oriented airline.” No matter how quietly homophobia is whispered, it doesn’t make it any less loud. We ask this airline to teach their employees to not discriminate against any couple, ever, regardless of their own beliefs.
We want to live in a society where if your loved one leans over to give you an innocent kiss on an airplane it’s not labeled as “excessive or not family oriented” by a corporation and it’s employees.
