Tom Gabel To Become Laura Jane Grace.

Tom Gabel, aged 31, soon to become Laura Jane Grace.

The lead singer of punk rock band Against Me!, opened up to this months’ issue of Rolling Stone and explained that he has been dealing with gender dysphoria for many years and has decided to take the necessary steps to find inner peace/happiness. This meaning, ingesting hormones and undergoing electrolysis treatments to pursue a life as a female.

Wife, Heather, has been “super-amazing and understanding” about the situation, and Gabel – who will soon be Laura Jane Grace -, aged 31, is crossing his fingers that the public and their fans will just as supportive.

When asked why he decided to announce his decision, Tom/Laura explained,

“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 understanding, and hoping they’ll be fairly kind.”


*Author’s note:

This transformation from male to female does NOT indicate and or influence anything about sexuality. Despite the fact that it should not matter to anyone other then the people directly involved, Laura will be seen as a lesbian to society while continuing her marriage with Heather.
