Tom Gabel is now Laura Jane Grace. Yep, the Against Me! Singer is now going public as a transgender and his wife (and mother of his child) Heather is okay with it. Apparently he has been struggling with bein g a he-she for quite some time and now he wants to be a full-fledged woman! Not only has he been undergoing electrolysis treatments, but he’s been taking hormones to, you know, get his estrogen going and the testosterone flowing.
So how is his wife taking it? Gabel said, “For me, the most terrifying thing about this was how she would accept the news. But she’s been super-amazing and understanding.”
If I were Heather, I would have so many questions. Did she know all along that Tom was struggling with what they call gender dysphoria? So does this make Heather, his wife, a lesbian now? And will he still use her willy that she never wanted to pleasure her wife?
Well the answer to the latter is eventually no. He is strongly considering a gender reconstructive surgery.
He goes on to add, “I’m going to have embarrassing moments 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.”
So how will this affect his band and his future with his family? You can read about that here.
