Tom Gabel (Against Me!) comes out as transgender, to begin living as a woman

May 08 2012, 10:02 PM EDT By Bryne Yancey


Against Me! frontman Tom Gabel has revealed plans to begin living as a woman. The full story appears in the new issue of Rolling Stone, excerpted here and below:

"Gabel, who has dealt privately with gender dysphoria for years, will soon begin the process of transition, by taking hormones and undergoing electrolysis treatments.

Gabel will eventually take the name Laura Jane Grace, and will remain married to her wife Heather. 'For me, the most terrifying thing about this was how she would accept the news,' says Gabel. 'But she's been super-amazing and understanding.'"
