TSA goes pink at Dulles Airport

It’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month and even the TSA is going pink.

TSA screeners don pink gloves for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

According to TSA spokeswoman Lisa Farbstein, during the month of October the 650 TSA officers at Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD) will be be wearing pink gloves instead of the more familiar blue gloves as a sign of their support in the fight against Breast Cancer.

Farbstein said this is the first year the officers have chosen to wear pink gloves, but that doing so is voluntary, So while there are 210 cases of pink gloves at the ready, you may still see some officers wearing blue gloves. She notes that the pink gloves come in sizes small to extra large and that pink XXL gloves aren’t available.
