Against Me!’s Laura Jane Grace Announces Memoir

Against Me! frontwoman Laura Jane Grace already had a fascinating life even before becoming arguably the first established rock star to come out as transgender. That story took her from the scummy, ferociously underground Florida DIY punk scene to major-label fame, and then it took her many other places when she came out. Back in 2014, Grace told her story, in a way, with Against Me!’s staggeringly great album Transgender Dysphoria Blues. And now she’ll do it in a very different way. On Instagram today, Grace announced that she’ll publish her memoir Tranny: Confessions Of Punk Rock’s Most Infamous Anarchist Sellout later this year. It’s coming 11/15 from Hachette Books, and Grace wrote it with Vice’s Dan Ozzi.
