The new issue of Rolling Stones magazine reports that AGAINST ME!’s Tom Gabel came out as transgender and has been privately dealing with gender dysphoria for years.
The magazine states that this is the first time a major rock star has come out openly as transgender.
Against Me! singer Tom Gabel reveals plans to begin living as a woman in the new issue of Rolling Stone. 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.”
