Last night I received a text message from BD writer Sammy Key concerning the lead singer of my favorite band Against Me!. When I googled his name it led to me a little article Rolling Stone had written in lieu of their June issue. In short lead singer Tom Gabel has been dealing with gender dysphoria for quite some time and because of this he has finally decided to come out and become a she. She plans on changing her to name to Laura Jane Grace and will begin hormone and electrolysis treatments in the coming months with the support of her wife Heather Gabel.
I will admit this came as a shock but then I reflected on Against Me!’s fourth full length album “New Wave“. The last song “The Ocean” revealed this: “And if I could have chosen, I would have been born a woman. My mother once told me she would have named me Laura. I’d grow up to be strong and beautiful like her.“. Looks Like Tom was giving us clues all long. Along with that Tom also played a song on his recent solo tour called “Transgender Dysphoria Blues” which you can watch past the break. I am very proud of Laura Jane Grace and I look forward to her happier future and the future of Against Me!, best of luck Laura.
