Laura Jane Grace


As the trans lead singer of the folk-punk outfit Against Me!, Grace has brought to light both an issue that is often overlooked and the biases of a punk community thought to be more progressive than it actually turned out to be. After the cancellation of the band’s spring tour, the singer will sing the blues—the “The Transgender Dysphoria Blues,” per the title of her band’s upcoming LP—and continue to tell a story that needs to be heard.
