When singer Tom Gabel of the punk band Against Me! announced in 2012 that he was transitioning to life as a woman and adopting a new name, Laura Jane Grace, much of the often-conservative rock establishment supported the vocalist's bold change into a more intrinsically authentic identity. It was only then, however, that Grace realized just how difficult life as a transgender woman would be, as her evolution seriously affected her relationships with friends and family. In an incisive new autobiography, Tranny: Confessions of Punk Rock's Most Infamous Anarchist Sellout, co-written by Dan Ozzi, Grace bravely peels back the layers of her life as a troubled army brat who didn't shy away from her gender dysphoria on her journey to becoming a punk-rock icon. Book Soup presents Grace discussing her book.
