This ad from the Banco Provincia in Argentina takes up the issue of transgender. A elderly man comes to apologize to a transgender woman for the attitudes he expressed toward her in the past, “for not knowing how to treat her.” What is extraordinary is that the bank then says “your life changes when you have a bank disposed to change.” One wonders which countries would show an ad like this.
