India’s 1st transgender pop band featured in 'The Gunn Reports' Cases for Creativity 2016'

New Delhi, Mar 19 (UNI) In yet another Global Honour for India’s first transgender pop band launched by Yashraj films, the band has been listed among 15 global campaigns on the influential 'The Gunn Reports’ Cases for Creativity 2016', a round-up of the campaigns that have achieved the highest accolade in advertising, by winning both a Cannes Gold Lion for creativity and a Gold Effie award for effectiveness.
Cases for Creativity is an annual study by James Hurman, author and founder of innovation consultancy 'Previously Unavailable', and the campaigns picked as part of it represent the ultimate industry achievement – of being the most awarded new work within the advertising industry.
On the latest honour for the band, Head of Y-Films, Ashish Patil said,''the love that Y-Films has been receiving from the industry over the last year has been overwhelming but it is even more gratifying that our little 6-Pack Band and the LGBTQ community continue getting more respect and recognition in the mainstream.
The band has been a labour of love for us, and a big shout out to Shamir Tandon, for curating the band, and the Brooke Bond Red Label team, for supporting it! Here’s hoping that transgender equality becomes a reality in India someday… that would be a true achievement.
" It’s been over a year since Yash Raj Films’ youth studio, Y-Films, launched the 6-Pack Band, India’s first transgender pop band, and the accolades for it have not stopped flowing in.
The band had earlier won India’s first Cannes Grand Prix Glass Lion, the prestigious Webby Award, 10 EMVIES, while breaking boundaries, taboos, clocking up millions of views and getting global recognition.
The 6-Pack Band, composed of six transgender singers hailing from India’s ‘Hijra’ community, is an initiative conceived by Ashish Patil, who was recently called one of the '50 Top Creative People in the World' by AdAge Magazine, and is driven by Y-Films, to help further the cause of gender equality and transgender rights in India.
"6-Pack Band gives a voice to the indomitable spirit of the community without trying to get preachy or patronizing.
In a language and through a medium that our world understands and loves.
Song & dance… Bollywood style! The campaign covers six songs, six music videos and some lovely insights into the community that has long lived on the fringes," Ashish said.
