The rest of this seems to have very little to do with actual air travel.

And c) both of those reasons trump (pun (maybe?) not intended) whatever half-a$$ boycott attempt the "Million Moms" are trying to organize.
As you pointed out, pretty much every major U.S. airline these days is doing something to support Pride month, from changing their Facebook and Instagram logos to rainbows to sponsoring and/or supporting their employees marching in Pride parades. There are basically no airlines left for members of the religious right to fly that share their values. Guess they're stuck taking Amtrak or Greyhound. Oh wait--they support Pride events too! I suppose they'll have to walk to Disneyworld and Thanksgiving at grandma's.
It also likely doesn't hurt that airlines I would guess have larger-than-average percentages of employees who identify as LGBTQ+ compared to many other industries. There's no real significant downside to supporting Pride events. So yay!
