Against Me's Tom Gabel: I'm Transgender

Against Me! singer Tom Gabel has come out as transgender.

The 31-year-old rocker “who has dealt privately with gender dysphoria for years, will soon begin the process of transition, by taking hormones and undergoing electrolysis treatments,” Rolling Stone reports.

“For me, the most terrifying thing about this was how [my wife Heather] would accept the news. But she’s been super-amazing and understanding,” Tom, who’ll eventually use the name Laura Jane Grace, told the mag.

“I’m going to have embarrassing moments,” Tom added, “and that won’t be fun. But that’s part of what talking to you is about – is hoping people will understand, and hoping they’ll be fairly kind.”

For more on Tom‘s transformation and story, check out the latest issue of Rolling Stone on newsstands this Friday (May 11).

    I’m willing to take thumbs down for my comment (I don’t care)but people need to accept the way they were born. Gender reassignment isn’t like coloring your hair…you’re totally changing what came natural.

    I didn’t know who he was prior to this, but all I can say is whatever makes him happy then then I’m happy for him. It’s his life, not ours, so I think judging him or condemning his is rather pointless.

    Good for him but why get married in the first place and put another person through that. I would be mortified if something like that were to happen to me.

    By that logic people shouldn´t change their natural hair color either.

    You’re an idiot!!!

    Chiara Says:

    No you are, because that´s exactly what you were saying.
    Being transgender is a real issue, and it didn´t come natural at all, because you were born in the wrong gender.

    That’s not what I was saying. I was saying that it’s a permanent procedure that can’t be changed.

    His wife didn’t know? lolllll Do they sleep in separate beds, wtf?
    I must agree with Nicole. This is a mental illness, and shouldn’t give the right to people and their doctors to mutilate their bodies to that extent. Plus they will never completely be the opposite gender. It would be much less psysically and mentally painful for them and their families to go see a psychiatrist!

    @supermodel: You’re an idiot. He was a born a man but is a woman mentally. He hasn’t undergone any procedures to make himself a woman yet, goddamn.

    Caro Says:

    @Nicole: No ****, sherlock, of course it’s permanent. You clearly are not educated in this matter, so maybe you should do some research before you make idiotic statements about topics you have absolutely no knowledge about.

    if I should be able to get a size dd boobs and 8 nose jobs he can be a woman all he wants

    Chiara Says:

    Of course it is. I don´t think anyone was saying it wasn´t.
    But that´s what therapy is there for, to determine if you really are transgender.
