Against Me! Singer Laura Jane Grace Featured In 'True Trans' Series; First Four Episodes Now Online [WATCH]
Against Me! singer Laura Jane Grace has had arguably the most inspiring story in rock over the past couple years.
Formerly known as Thomas Gabel, she dealt with gender dysphoria throughout her life before taking her new name and coming out as a transgender woman in 2012.
Naturally, this process has brought plenty of attention to gender dysphoria, and AOL decided to order a documentary series featuring Grace.
Here's the show description for True Trans (via the official website):
No stranger to being different, Laura Jane Grace always felt like an outsider in the posh Florida suburb where she grew up. It was only in the rebellion of the punk scene and playing music that she found a home. After surviving years of struggle, things finally seemed to be taking off when her band inked its first major record deal. On the inside, though, Laura was buckling under the pressure of being someone she wasn't.
The first four episodes are now online, and you can check out the inaugural one below:
