Orbitz Teams Up With Actors Indya Moore And Jeremy Pope To Raise $50k For LGBTQIA+ Travelers
The travel company Orbitz has partnered with Indya Moore and Jeremy Pope of FX’s Pose for a week-long campaign to help raise $50,000 for the International LGBTQ+ Travel Association (IGLTA).
On December 1st these two actors, activists and castmates who are part of the LGBTQIA+ community, will star in social videos titled #TheJourney which was art directed and filmed by Pope. Both Moore and Pope will share their personal journeys and invite their followers to learn more about how travel can help you become more self-aware.
Carey Malloy, Orbitz Brand Director says in a statement, “The journey is just beginning for our brand as we advocate for a more equal and inclusive travel experience for LGBTQ+ travelers around the world. We’re thrilled to be working with Jeremy and Indya, who are influential and important advocates in this community, to support his work with IGLTA.”
Moore shares her speaks of the importance of the campaign in a statement saying, “Not everyone feels safe enough to be themselves openly in this world. Finding that safety is a journey that requires so much self-love and acceptance, and deserves celebration. Some of us can and have done it alone, but it’s easier when we have the support we need to embark on our journey to realising ourselves, our dreams, and what we deserve. Wherever our journeys take us literally and figuratively, I’m so grateful that Orbitz is supporting us by helping improve our already challenging travel experiences. Any and all support for LGBTQ+ people and our journeys take us a long way.”

“From the very beginning, I knew I wanted to have a very hands on role in Orbitz’s Giving Tuesday campaign because the meaning and intention behind it is one deeply personal to me. I art directed and shot the video one on one with Indya to also give the campaign content an added layer of intimacy. I hope the rawness in our storytelling helps spark meaningful dialogue around the journeys we all traverse within the LGBTQ+ community, this Giving Tuesday and beyond,” says Pope when speaking of his involvement in the campaign.
If you’re interested in participating in this campaign, head to Orbitz.com/thejourney between December 1st-6th and thank a love one who has helped you on your journey to self-love. Orbitz will be donating $20 to IGLTA Donations for every message sent, with the intentions to match up to $50,000.
