Online rental service Airbnb honored Caitlyn Jenner at Wednesday’s ESPY Awards where she accepted the Arthur Ashe Courage Award and gave a groundbreaking, emotional speech about her transition.
Airbnb ran an ad celebrating ‘transkind’ and also tweeted its support during the ceremony, saying “It takes courage to make a difference in the world. It also takes kindness. Tonight we honor both. #Transkind #ESPYS.”

The Angela Bassett-narrated ad featured a baby walking toward an open door and the words mankind, womankind, humankind, transkind.
Says Bassett: “Is man kind? Are we good? Go see. Go look through their windows so you can understand their views, sit at their tables so you can share their tastes. Sleep in their beds, so you may know their dreams.”
