New York ARTCC displays the rainbow, transgender, and bisexual flags to remind LGBTIQA+ VATSIM members who may feel out of place in this community that they are welcome and celebrated here.
As an organisation with LGBTIQA+ members, we recognise the importance of creating an welcoming environment, and a small symbol can go a long way to achieve that.
It is not a political statement nor an act of protest and we appreciate your support in creating a VATSIM community open to all, regardless of gender identity, sexuality, age, or background.
Thank you to the Jacksonville and Cleveland ARTCCs in VATUSA and Gander Oceanic FIR for joining us in this!
