Pantene: Look at these beautiful humans

The shampoo brand features a series of transgender Thai people in a new campaign.

This film for P&G's Pantene by Greynj United features Treechada Petcharat (also known as Poyd), Kulchaya Tansiri, Nicha Rongram, Nijshanaaj Sudlarphaar (also known as Sarina Thai) and Tachanan Khontrong.

All are transgender people who are well-known for various reasons, from modeling to acting to activism, and Ad Nut encourages you to Google them. But the video smartly shows many of them in everyday situations. Ad Nut is happy to see such "normalisation" taking place. It's always great when people who have traditionally been seen as "other" can instead be portrayed as simply people. People who are deserving not of special treatment, but simpliy of equal treatment. And of fabulous hair. 

The campaign will run through September on Instagram and Facebook.

Interestingly, Pantene rival Sunsilk (from rival FMCG giant Unilever) has also highlighted transgender people in recent advertising.
