The D.C. Office of Human Rights just unveiled new ads from their Transgender and Gender Identity Respect campaign.

The five-ad series, which is being described as the nation’s first government-funded campaign focused exclusively on the betterment of transgender and gender non-conforming people, will be displayed on bus shelters throughout the city this fall and winter.

The ad below features Consuella, a transgender woman from the D.C. area. Other ads feature transgender men and a genderqueer person.

All ads remind viewers that discrimination based on gender identity and expression is illegal in the District of Columbia. They also include resources for reporting discrimination.
