India's first transgender band, 6-Pack Band, went global with their first international performance at Cannes Lions recently. The band, launched by Y-Films in collaboration with Mindshare Mumbai and Brooke Bond Red Label, performed at the 64th International Festival of Creativity.

After the success of their debut single, Hum Hain Happy, and winning the Cannes Grand Prix Glass Lion at the Cannes Lions Festival last year, the band was invited to the festival to share their success story, and to perform. The band consists of six members: Fida Khan, Ravina Jagtap, Asha Jagtap, Chandni Suvarnakar, Komal Jagtap and Bhavika Patil.

"It feels great to know that through our association with the campaign, we have been able to spread our message of inclusiveness, encourage people to become more accepting, break barriers and bond over a cup of tea," Shiva Krishnamurthy, Brooke Bond Red Label spokesperson and the category head, Tea, at Hindustan Unilever Limited, said.
