Tom Gabel

Against Me! singer Tom Gabel, who will now be taking the name Laura Jane Grace, discusses being transgendered and her coming out process with friends and family over the course of her life. She goes into specific detail about her plans to transition and how this has effected her marriage ?and relationship with her family.

“I’m going to have embarrassing moments,” says Grace, “and that won’t be fun. But that’s part of what talking to you is about – is hoping people will understand, and hoping they’ll be fairly kind.”

This marks the first time a popular rock musician has publicly come out as transgendered in a mainstream magazine. While the news has surprised some, the response has been overwhelmingly supportive from fans and fellow musicians alike.
