Brave Man – Will Young

Brave Man Will Young song reviewA timely and heart-breaking video to match a strong and inspiring song.

At face-value, Will Young’s Brave Man is an empowering and uplifting tune to say the least. However, the controversial music video puts the song in context, which follows a young naked transgender man’s journey, making it a timely and inspirational message.

I’m a brave man
Running through the rain
I’m a brave man
Not scared to feel the pain…

Despite the song being titled ‘Brave Man‘, Will Young commented that being a transgender person isn’t brave. Rather, the message is that “being vulnerable is to be strong”.

“I know that transgender people do not like being called brave. It is something that is innate. Not a choice, but a given. Being a gay man I feel the same. I wasn’t ‘brave’ to come out it was simply what I had to do.” – Will Young, Facebook

No matter what you read into the song, no matter what you take away from it, you can’t deny it is a catchy and uplifting tune. I can’t get it out of my head after just one listen!
