Thorn spoke about the challenges trans people face within the NHS and the “discrimination” brought against them in all facets of life.
Thorn speaks to the real fear of Britain’s transphobic culture she feels now that she has come out publicly.

In online trans communities, Thorn felt seen—but not always in the way she wanted. Sometimes, people would speculate about her identity there. “I accessed a few [spaces] anonymously and there were a few people posting screenshots of my videos saying, ‘Do you think Philosophy Tube’s transitioning or not?’” she says. “I found that quite invasive, and I thought, ‘This is going to put pressure on me that I don’t need.’”
