Laura Jane Grace Appears in NME

Laura Jane Grace

Laura Jane Grace of the Florida-based Against Me! sat down with NME’s Paris Lees for an extended interview in which she discussed her transition from male to female as well as its effect on her wife and daughter, her fans and Against Me!

“Discussing her own personal happiness one year into the transition, Grace says: ‘I have issues in my life which aren’t related to being trans. Whether that’s dealing with alcoholism or drug abuse or manic depressiveness, it’s not as simple as coming out and then the world is all roses.’ Similarly, Grace does not want to be seen as a spokesperson for transgender issues: ‘It’s like my psychiatrist says, ‘Just because you’re diagnosed with cancer doesn’t mean you’re an authority on cancer’.”

Against Me! is set to release a new album, Transgender Dysphoria Blues, on January 21.
