You can file this under NOT April Fools’ Day news. Rolling Stone broke the news about Tom Gabel coming out as transgender and will undergo a sex change. He/She will be known as Laura Jane Grace and be still married to wife Heather. Why change to Laura Jane Grace when you can make things easy and just be called Tammy Gabel? Just have to change to o; you can probably even just scrape out your driving license to make it look like an a. Tom is incredibly brave for coming out to do this, but wonder how Against Me will sound now. Maybe if you have some vinyl of Against Me and sped up the record, you can get a good idea?
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.”
