 Google’s New Ad Features a Gym that Supports Transgendered People

At a time when major corporations are afraid to speak up for transgendered people, Google has invited them to join its “proud community." Its new ad for “Google My Business” features Jake, a young male-identified female going through transition. During this tough time, Jake found friendship and community at a local gym in Kansas City, Missouri that isn’t afraid to support a transgendered workout group. 

I was never comfortable with the way I looked when I looked in the mirror. I would want to see something masculine.

The comments show why this type of inclusion is so imporant.
