Quebec Government

Born a Girl

Agency: Lg2


Raising awareness is one thing, but generating true understanding and acceptance is a whole other matter. That's why the government of Quebec has created a message that aims to fight transphobia. In the documentary video we discover a Quebec family. Mila has always felt like a girl inside, so her parents surprise her with a very special birthday gift. Apart from showing Mila's own personal experience, the anti-transphobia campaign conveys a strong message about acceptance and suggests paths that families of transgender people can take. A timely campaign on a topic often seen in the news, the ultimate aim is to give Quebecers a more accurate notion of what life is truly like for transgender people and their families. This recent video on transphobia is part of a second phase in a major campaign against violence of all kinds.

This professional campaign titled 'Born a Girl' was published in Canada in December, 2019. It was created for the brand: Quebec Government, by ad agency: Lg2. This Film medium campaign is related to the Public Interest industry and contains 1 media asset. It was submitted about 4 years ago by Brand Manager: Marie-Luce Ouellet of lg2.
