Pride Month Profiles: Andres Morales

Andres Morales

For Pride Month this year, the AFL-CIO is spotlighting various LGBTQ+ workers who have worked and continue to work at the intersection of civil and labor rights in the United States. Today's profile is Andres Morales of the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA (AFA-CWA).

Andres Morales is a proud flight attendant for United Airlines based out of Houston, Texas. He is also a strong activist in his union, the AFA-CWA, serving as the human rights and equity chair for his airline. Morales says he got involved with the AFA-CWA because the flight attendants at United lost a flying partner and the political climate was and continues to be hostile toward people of color. When he found a space to use his concerns and passion to uplift his colleagues, he leapt at it. As an activist and advocate, Morales works to ensure that his flying partners, and especially those in the LGBTQ+ community, are seen, heard and respected as their authentic selves.
