Now, the razor company is sharing the story of Samson Bonkebantu Brown’s first shave with his father.
“Thank you so much to Gillette for allowing me to share such an important moment in a man’s life with my father,” Brown commented. “I look forward to the great things you’re going to continue doing to encourage us all to be our best selves.”
In the video, Brown talks about his journey. “I always know I was different. I didn’t know that there was a term for the type of person that I was. I went into my transition just wanting to be happy.”
Whenever, wherever, however it happens – your first shave is special.

Throughout the video, Brown’s father encourages him.
At a time when transgender men and women, as well as others in the LGBTQ+ community, are facing increasing discrimination from the U.S. government, this video is a nice show of support, and a refreshing change.
