Gillette has released a groundbreaking new advertisement that is the first to have a transgender man shave
The start of the advertisement starts with Mr. Brown saying: & # 39; I just wanted to be happy in my transition & # 39;
The advertisement contained Samson Bonkeabantu Brown and his father
& # 39; I just wanted to be happy in my transition. & # 39;
After Mr. Brown and his father moved to the bathroom, he is seen as a Gillette razor.
Before he takes the razor in his face, he mimics how he will do it and he says: & # 39; South, south, north, north, east, west. Never rushed. & # 39;
While his fingers are shaking, his father says: & # 39; Don't be scared now.
& # 39; Shaving is about self-confidence. & # 39;
He then says: & # 39; Oh I'm fine, you're okay. & # 39;
At the end of the advertisement, Mr. Brown says: & # 39; I am finally at the point in my masculinity where I am really happy. & # 39;
The groundbreaking advertisement sent social media users furiously as they flocked to Twitter to show their support
Other users could not share the joy that was felt most about the inclusive ad and said they would stop buying Gillette products
In a post on Facebook, Mr. Brown wrote: & # 39; With Gillette's help, I was able to share an important milestone in the life of every man with my father.
& # 39; This moment overwhelmed me while filming and seeing the ad again today since it was launched.
& # 39; I am well aware of how blessed I am to be able to exist in this world, supported by my family in a way that all too often many of my trans-siblings exist outside the binary world, are not always happy. & # 39;
The advertisement sent social media users into a frenzy while they flocked to Twitter to show their support.
A user, Wayne Rogers, said: & # 39; s so good, great story and advertisement together. Well done Gillette to get out of there. Congratulations Samson. & # 39;
Another said: & # 39; This is the kind of representation that transgender needs and deserves. Also a good example of positive masculinity. Well done Gillette. & # 39;
Although most users loved Gillette's inclusive message, others were not so happy.
One user wrote: & # 39; I do not want to view this stuff sorry. And I don't want to think of social issues when I buy razors. So no Gillette for me anymore. & # 39;
