Against Me! Singer Tom Gabel Is Transitioning

Tom Gabel, lead singer for the rock band Against Me! has revealed his struggle with gender dysmorphia in the upcoming issue of Rolling Stone.

Soon he will go by the name Laura Jane Grace, begin taking hormones, and have his body hair removed. He will remain married to his wife Heather.

Gabel tells the magazine, “For me, the most terrifying thing about this was how she would accept the news, but she’s been super amazing and understanding.”

“I’m going to have embarrassing moments, 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.” 

Of we support you! Now make another album. And please, refrain from writing me about the political incorrectness of referring to Tom/Laura as “he.”

    This is going to be a struggle, being that he is a role model and someone in the eye of the public. It would be hard if he wasn’t famous. Good luck and be strong, you are a brave person.
