A Missouri man named Jacob talks about transitioning from being a woman to a man in an ad for Pride Month released Tuesday by Google My Business, a product that is supposed to help local businesses make themselves more visible in search.

This two-and-a-half-minute spot comes weeks after a Vanity Fair cover introduced reality TV star Caitlyn Jenner (formerly known as Bruce Jenner).
