A video has surfaced which reportedly shows the CEO of United Airlines, Scott Kirby, dressed in drag and dancing to Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance”.
“This is Scott Kirby, the CEO of @united . He’s a drag queen and has been incorporating drag into @united. This video should tell you everything you need to know,” @LibsofTikTok wrote Thursday, posting the now-viral video it uncovered.
The video shows a man, ostensibly Kirby, dressed in a skimpy silver dress, high heels, and a blonde wig first crawling on the ground and then dancing around to cheers from the off-camera audience. A troupe of backup dancers dressed in similar garb were also featured as part of the raunchy performance. The video allegedly was taken during a Halloween party at the company in 2010.
It seems that Kirby’s proclivity for drag is not an isolated matter. A Fort Worth Star-Telegram article, including video, reports another performance by Drag Queen Kirby.
Photos from Libs of Tik Tok show a man, allegedly Kirby, dressed in drag at a party, along with photos of drag queens attending events sponsored by United Airlines. Libs of Tik Tok also revealed on January 15 that a transgender pilot at United is running a diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) committee and sent a letter concerning the committee in which he sought to “dispel a few myths and misconceptions that have already been circulating” concerning DEI.
Indeed, DEI appears to be a favorite focus of Kirby’s, as well. In an interview with Axios, Kirby spoke about United’s Aviators Academy, which he said “we have committed that 50 percent of classes are women or people of color Today, only 19 percent of our pilots at United Airlines are women or people of color, and by the way, from the data I’ve seen, that’s the highest of any airline in the country.” Kirby added, “one of the things we do when we’re doing an interview we require women and people of color to be involved in the interview process.”
It seems that the only flying United Airlines seems to care about is flying headlong into the thick of DEI ideology and drag shows.
