Watch The Emotional Video For Will Young’s “Brave Man”

it shows trans men in a whole new light

Will Young released the visuals for his song "Brave Man," and to say that they're moving is an understatement. The video follows a transgender man walking naked through the streets of London, capturing the responses of the people he passes by. He's teased, covered up, and ridiculed as he makes his way through the city, maintaining a face of stone for the whole journey. "It seems extremely brave to be a man in a woman's body and then decide to do something about this," Young said to Independent. "As I thought more about it, I realised that there is often coverage of what it is to be a woman in a man’s body but never to my knowledge the documenting of the opposite. Almost a perverted kind of patriarchy."

Watch the video for an artful, socially-conscious interpretation of "Brave Man."
