RollingStone.com is reporting that Against Me! vocalist Tom Gabel has been struggling privately with gender dysphoria for years and plans to start living his life as a woman under the name Laura Jane Grace.

Gabel told Rolling Stone he will remain married to his wife and that was the scariest part about it, saying, “For me, the most terrifying thing about this was how she would accept the news. But she’s been super-amazing and understanding.” Gabel and his wife have a 2-year-old daughter.

Gabel talked about his future and having fo face obstacles. “I’m going to have embarrassing moments,” says Gabel, “and that won’t be fun. But that’s part of what talking to you is about – is hoping people will understand, and hoping they’ll be fairly kind.”

The full story about Gabel, his transformation and what it means to the future of Against Me! will be in the May 11 issue of Rolling Stone.
