Some readers have asked me to blog about LGBT among the crew. Frankly, I am not an expert on the subject so I can't say much about this special group of people.
However, in my umpteenth years of flying, I must admit that I know a little bit more about the LB than the BT.
The Lesbians are not very open about themselves. They tend to be secretive and keep to themselves. They do not trust the "straight" crew or even the Gays. The latter are more open and some are quite proud to be considered as gays.
In my opinion, gays made up of about little more than 10% of the crew population of 8,500. The lesbian group is much smaller, perhaps 2 to 3%.
The gay crew are by and large good service providers. They take pride in their personal grooming as well as in their work. Most, if not all of them will look forward to their next flight with eagerness. Every flight is an opportunity for them to meet handsome and good looking passengers as well as the male crew. Those lovely stewardesses who work under their senior gay stewards must be wise enough to not to compete with them for a share of the macho male passengers. If one crosses swords with her gay senior, one would be in trouble.
As for the lesbians, their jealousy is much more intense than the gays. For the stewards working under senior lesbian crew, they must know who their senior lesbians crew are eyeing. For example, Anne is a beautiful charming stewardess and Linda the lesbian IFM (Inflight Manager) has an eye for her, then John the steward should steer clear of Anne or else......!
The Bisexual and Transgender are mysterious groups because very little is known about them.
I hope I 've answered the question posed by our readers.
