    Google is the latest company using Pride Month to make a sale.

    The search engine's commerce spinoff, Google My Business, has a new ad for a Missouri gym that welcomes transgender men.

    Hailee Bland Walsh, the owner of City Gym in Kansas City, said her studio "should be more than a place to work out. It should be a place to belong."

    City Gym in Kansas City has a workout group for transgender men.
    It’s not clear that the ad is for the search giants — whose My Business feature helps companies get on Google searches, maps and Google+ — until the end of the clip.

    Instead, it focuses on the transition of one of its members from female to male.

    It's not the only company courting the LBGTQ population for Pride Month.

    On Monday, yogurt purveyor Chobani released a steamy ad featuring a lesbian couple cavorting in bed.

    "We're a national food company that has beliefs, from animal welfare to equality," Peter McGuinness, Chobani's chief marketing officer told the Daily News.

    Tylenol also has a new ad that features gay and lesbian couples, and in December, the brand introduced one with a blended family that included a woman, her ex-husband and her new wife.

    Other companies that have recently taken a pro-gay stance in their ads include Tiffany and Co. and Wells Fargo.
