Laura Jane Grace

Against Me! singer Laura Jane Grace (formerly Tom Gabel) came out as transgender back in 2012 and has since released a new AM! album that often touches on the matter, Transgender Dysphoria Blues, and toured extensively in support of it. Now, Laura is getting a reality series on AOL which tells her story, as well as the stories of "other members of the trans community whose experiences are woefully underrepresented and misunderstood in the media." Check out the trailer video for the series HERE.

Against Me! are about to kick off another tour, this time with Tony Molina and Big Eyes. It begins in North Carolina on Thursday (5/1) and hits NYC on Saturday (5/3) at Webster Hall. Tickets for that show are still available.

I think I know what Aerosmith song they'll use for the show intro

If you go up to him and call him Tom what happens?

Truly is amazing how close-minded people are when they're given an anonymous forum.

wow, AOL? how punk!!

Yeah bro, we'd all love to be a woman if it meant never having to deal with all the hormones, menstruation, baby making and weak bones. Enjoy your fake tits that are the band aid youre putting on your massive psychological issue that no one wants to sit down and figure out how to solve. Band aid the situation! Yay for 2014!!!!

If your transgender can you be a lesbian and bang chicks?

Or is that against the rules

How much longer of HIS 15 mins are left. The band never got any attention (they really suck!) , but this freak show is getting plenty.
So HE wants to pretend to be a girl, and it's news somehow?

Posted by o0o0 | April 30, 2014 8:19 PM

Some guys would probably make sorta hot chicks, or at least attractive ones I would imagine. Maybe it's me but I don't feel that Tom is one of them. Sorry dude.

Whoa! Not that I had high expectations to begin with, but I'm actually shocked how ignorant you anons are. How hard is it to call someone by their chosen name and pronouns? Have you any empathy?

I've never been an Against Me! fan, but I've followed Laura's transformation and I really respect how open she's been. Clearly the world needs to be more accepting and I hope she can help open doors for others.

I feel so much pity for his poor wife and kids. Seriously. This must be traumatizing to them. What selfish behavior on his part.

I am coming out today, as an octopus. I have always felt like an octopus inside, so it's time i acknowledge what is already there. No one can ever tell me to get out of the pool again.

lot of threatened, frustrated white dudes on this thread. par for the course.

@9:21--I shot par for this course. Pretty proud of myself. It's a tough one. Hope to get my master invite next year.

Do you golf? Always looking for a golfing partner (especially one that challenges me.)

Posted by E.L. Fudge | May 1, 2014 9:27 AM

I wonder if a master invite is similar to an invitation to The Masters. Prolly not.

Imagine there's no penis
It's easy of you try
No Y chromosome
Just wear a skirt and cry

Imagine Tom Gabel
Becoming Laura Grace
Ah ha aaaah

@ 9:31. Oopsy. Forgot to capitalize and the "s." Good catch. Thank you, friend.

Posted by E.L. Fudge | May 1, 2014 9:39 AM

If only the world was populated with people who think, acted, and looked just like me.

Posted by Anonymous | May 1, 2014 5:15 PM

Ha, 9:21- won't somebody think of the children!?!

Hey, bigots, especially the Republicans who 'pity his poor wife and kids' and who think she has a 'massive psychological issue'-- do you seriously think she made this decision lightly? Do you think it would have been better for the wife and kids to stay closeted? Are you this ignorant and bigoted in your day-to-day life, or just on the Internet?

When I read website comments here and elsewhere I'm often (probably naively) surprised at how stupid people can be, mostly because many of you seem to hide it so well in your day-to-day lives.

^ sounds like this feller has also used a scissor.

Posted by Anonymous | May 1, 2014 5:45 PM

Sounds like 5:25 has anger issues as well. Probably explains a lot.

Favorite Pastime: constructing elaborate conspiracy theories around opinions I don't agree with in order to depersonalize and dismiss others. Oh, and I also enjoy swimming.

That dude from Wu-Tang (christ bearer) cut his schlong off and everybody in the news was saying how crazy and nuts he was, but this dude does it and he gets a reality show?
