LGBTQ ICONS

For years, Norwegian has emblazoned prominent LGBTQ icons beloved by the community on the tail fins of its fleet. Below are just a few recent tail fin heroes who paved the way for equality, expression and education:

Harvey Milk – Milk was one of the world’s first openly gay politicians and civil rights leader that fought boldly for equality for LGBTQ individuals and other minorities in the United States. Tail fin debuted March 2019.

Oscar Wilde – Wilde was an Irish poet and literary genius, world famous for “The Importance for Being Earnest” and “Picture of Dorian Gray.” He set a path for future artists to express themselves ‘earnestly’. Tail fin debuted October 2018.

Freddie Mercury – Mercury was world-famous as the outrageously talented lead singer of the legendary British rock band, Queen. His flamboyant stage presence and mega-hit songs were recently immortalized in the movie “Bohemian Rhapsody.” Tail fin debuted July 2017.

Greta Garbo – Garbo was a Swedish-American Hollywood icon, best known for her Oscar-nominated roles in Anna Christie and Romance. Tail fin debuted in January 2016 (first-ever tail fin hero on a 787 Dreamliner)“Norwegian Air’s continued support of the Harvey Milk Foundation’s global programing is represented more than Harvey Milk as a tail fin hero on their aircraft – he is a symbol of courage and inclusion for which the airline strives. We are proud to be marching alongside Norwegian crew and staff at NYC’s WorldPride March in honor of a milestone year for the LGBTQ community. Although we have come a long way since Stonewall, we continue what Harvey Milk started four decades ago, pushing equality and acceptance evermore forward,” said Stuart Milk, nephew and co-founder, Harvey Milk Foundation.
