Gay Airline Employee Says He’s Too Gay To Work At Airline, Where Being Gay Is Required

Something about this case just doesn’t add up: Michael Galvin, who is gay, has launched a $50,000 wrongful termination suit against his old bosses at the airline Jetstar, claiming his manager insisted it was required that all staff be gay. Which, uh, Galvin is? “He (the manager) was completely homophobic,” he says. “I could tell from his body language.” But I guess it’s Galvin’s position that his manager insists he was only given the job because he’s gay, not because he’s qualified? Anyhow, Galvin claims his manager even told him his voice wasn’t masculine enough, and when Galvin was set to begin training as a cabin crew member, he was removed after his manager gave him a negative performance review.
