Commenting on the video, Will Young said:

"It seems extremely brave to be a man in a woman's body and then decide to do something about this. 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.

“In this video we see a man determined to be himself in the face of all adversity from inside and outside. It isn't brave but my God it shows true grit and strength. What a wonderful thing... This video is about taking a moment in time to explore a section of society who stand up for themselves.”
