Calvin Klein have hired a ‘pregnant man’ for their new campaign.
The fashion company launched a brand new campaign as past of Mother’s Day last Sunday, staring Roberto Bete – who is a transgender man who still has female reproductive system.
I’m sure you’re not surprised that this has caused lots of controversy on social media.
Some say this is an ‘insult to women’ as the ad was run on Mother’s Day, while some – like the model himself – see it as showcasing “the realities of new families”.
See Calvin Klein’s campaign below:
The company wrote:
‘Today, in support of women and mothers all over the world, we’re spotlighting the realities of new families.’
See Bete’s post below:
Bete just gave birth to a beautiful baby today who he has named Noah, announcing the birth on his Instagram and writing in the caption:
‘At that moment, the great love of my life was born,’
‘For you Noah’
Congratulations to Roberto and Erika!
