Default Tom Gabel of Against Me! Comes Out as Transgender

Read more about it at the Rolling Stone web page: http://www.rollingstone.com/music/ne...ender-20120508
and the full article will be in the edition that comes out Friday May 11th.

(If you are unsure who the band is, their single that I'm most familiar with is "I was a teenage anarchist" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c7RUeMCZL3Q but I've certainly heard on the radio some of their other stuff too:
- thrash unreal http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rzJ21...eZ6M1PO5Rt5d9w
- and this one, "Stop!" has been on the radio, and used at voting time: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4fGmf...feature=relmfu ).

Not that they are a hugely known band, but getting it discussed in Rolling Stone ought to generate some discussion.....for better or worse. Tom is married and has a kid, and the couple are staying together, so that is hopefully something that will help cast this in a positive light. Will also be interesting to see how the band does after this.

Yah, mentioned in the online article that that was the most terrifying part--I can well imagine! Not only worried about her reaction, but knowing that you could be messing up the life of someone you love if she can't handle it.

Good luck to both of 'em. Good to see some supportive comments on that article, but damn! there's some hate there for trans folks!
WTF is wrong with people, they act like it's some kind of personal punch in the face that this person - someone they don't even personally know - is transistioning??? I can't get my head around that mentality...

On the up side, I remember hearing about this on Radio 1 on the Mike whatsisname punk show, and that was all v. supportive commentary...

Oh, and Radio 1 Zane Lowe just did a big old feature / interview with Frank Ocean about his music - just after Frank came out about being bi...
