A compelling new music video from artist Will Young follows a transgender man as he strips down in a British pub and walks naked through a seaside town.

The video for “Brave Man” follows the young man as he experiences adversity and ridicule while through the town naked. At the end of the video, the viewer discovers that he has, at some point in his life, transitioned.

“Through tough times embracing myself as someone ‘different’ allowed me to embrace all differences in others, to embrace their vulnerability and their struggles as well as their inner strength and determination to be their true authentic selves,” Young reportedly stated. “When I wrote the song, this is what I was referring to  — the determination in modern life to be my authentic self. In this video we see a man determined to be himself in the face of all adversity from inside and outside.”
