Sasheer Zamata[Starts with a video of Starbucks]
Female voice: Last week, Starbucks created the Race Together campaign, which encourage all the baristas across the country to start a dialog with their customers about race. It was a way to open minds and share thoughts. All over coffee. And we think Starbucks is on the right track.
So, we at Pep Boys are starting a conversation too. This month, all Pep Boys mechanics are encouraged to start a dialog with you, the customer, about gender and sexual identity. As part of Pep Boys new Genderflect campaign.[Cut to a Pep Boy staff talking to a customer]

Aidy: Yeah, she was a man.
Kate: Will you go get my car?[cut to Aidy writing ‘Genderflect’ on a car’s windscreen.]

Kyle: I think my cousin’s kid got born wrong. Well, not wrong, you know? Coz that’s the thing, you know? It’s not wrong if it’s right the hip.
