“WE NEED YOU! PrideFlight2018 is a bid to restore and fly a WWII era DC3 around the globe in an attempt to set a record as the 1st openly gay pilot to circumnavigate the globe. Be a part of LGBTQ and aviation history!” a Facebook message from PrideFlight2018 reads.
Pilot DJ Doran is hoping to depart Indianapolis and make stops in countries around the globe, creating dialogues with LGBTQA communities and their allies that are struggling for even the most basic human rights, but he needs our help.
Flying a WWII–era DC-3, Doran’s team has named their beautiful airplane The Bag Lady (a nod to a group of drag queens who help raise money for various charities).
If their Kickstarter is successful, Doran will be the first openly gay pilot to circumnavigate the globe flying a WWII era DC-3.
