TFG Unbuttoned: A family accidentally books the Virgin Atlantic Pride flight—and enjoys every minute of it!
07.09.19 | Unbuttoned wraps up Pride 2019 with one feel good and two business stories. First, a British family with two young sons unexpectedly booked themselves on to Virgin Atlantic’s “Pride Flight.” The London to New York flight was organized to celebrate World Pride 2019 and mark the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising. It featured drag queens, celebrity performances, singing and dancing, and plenty of glitter. The Powell family fully embraced the party atmosphere. Then, agency giant FCB claims it is resigning their Nivea Cream marketing duties after someone on the Nivea team said, “we don’t do gay.” Tim and John have their own take on the kerfuffle. Finally, we take a look at brands that stubbed their toe trying to reach the LGBTQ consumer in June.
