Watch: Against Me! singer to star in ‘True Trans’ documentary series

Nick Duffy September 5, 2014

The lead singer of Against Me! is to appear in a documentary about her transition to female.

Punk rock frontwoman Laura Jane Grace came out as transgender in 2012, and has continued to enjoy success with the band.

It was announced today that she will star in True Trans, an AOL web documentary which features Grace and other trans people discussing their gender identity and transition.

The band released an album titled Transgender Dysphoria Blues in January, peaking at number 23 on the US Billboard album chart.

The 10-part documentary series, which is named after Against Me! track True Trans Soul Rebel, will debut its first four episodes on October 10, in honour of national coming out day.

Laura Jane Grace told Time magazine: “The opportunity I had while shooting this show was nothing short of tremendous.

“Getting the chance to listen to other people tell their stories of how life shaped their identities and views on gender couldn’t help but further inform my own understanding of just how complicated and also how simple all of it really is.”
