Gillette ad: Dad teaches transgender son to shave


Gillette embraces the LGBT community in a new ad. 

The shaving giant shared an advertisement on Facebook, showing a transgender man shaving in the mirror for the first time as his father coaches him. 

The ad’s tagline is “Whenever, wherever, however it happens – your first shave is special.”

It’s part of Gillette’s new #MyBestSelf campaign. 

Samson Bonkeabantu Brown, a Canadian artist, stars in the ad. 

The LGBTQ family advocacy group PFLAG National tweeted its approval. 

Brown says he believes the ad will bring hope to other transgender people.
