A new commercial from Denmark contains a heartwarming message for the holidays about acceptance and the power of familiar love.
HelloGiggles.com said that the ad is for electronics company Elgiganten and is called “Let the gifts speak.”
It begins with a family at Christmas opening presents. One member of the family, a teenaged trans daughter looks uncomfortable and ill-at-ease until her father hands her a gift.
She opens it and smiles. The gift is a mini hair straightener, a sweet sign of her father’s acceptance of her identity.
“What we love so much about this ad is how real it is,” wrote Karim Kheraj at Hello Giggles. “Not only does it showcase how difficult it can be for some people during the holiday season, but it’s a realistic portrayal of how families deal with transitions in their lives, whatever they may be.”
This is also a timely reminder of how difficult this time of year is for so many people, and a little love and acceptance can go a very long way. It’s the season to reach out.
