Calvin Klein Features Pregnant Trans Man in Ad Campaign
Calvin Klein featured a pregnant transgender man as part of a new inclusive ad campaign celebrating motherhood.
“Today, in support of women and mothers around the world, we highlight the reality of new families,” the company wrote on Instagram. “[Erika Feeh] and [Roberto Bete] are expecting parents from Brazil. Roberto is due to give birth to his and Erika’s son Noah any day now.”
According to The Daily Wire, the post generated more than 30,000 likes, and the comments were overwhelmingly supportive, which could be because of a follow-up from Calvin Klein in the comments.
“We embrace this platform as an inclusive and respectful environment for individualism and self-expression. At Calvin Klein, we tolerate everything except intolerance— any intolerant commentary will be removed, and any accounts issuing hateful statements may be blocked,” the company wrote.
Still, some critics weighed in on the new ad campaign.
“Virtue signaling at its finest. None of this has anything to do with clothing,” one commenter wrote.
