The story of Chris and Gus brings us back to the US, this time to the east coast, to Florida to be more precise. But this isn’t actually the beginning of their story together.

Because, you know, New York is New York, right? Well, not quite…

Great news passengers who do not identify as male or female, and thus as non-binary or genderqueer! Several major US American airlines, including Delta (partner of KLM), JetBlue, United Airlines, Alaska Airlines, and American Airlines, as well as Southwest, offer a gender-neutral choice during the future booking process of an airline ticket. In addition to the men and women options, there are said to be two other categories.
