Now the first interview of Gabel under his new idenity of Laura Jane Grace has been published online. In the interview Jane Grace opens up about her attempts to consciously lead life as a male but eventually realising the empowerment she could achieve by opening up about her transsexuality.

Jane Grace also discusses her thoughts on how to help her daughter understand the process of sex change and the incredible support she continues to receive from her wife Heather.

As for the future of her band, Against Me!, Jane Grace plans to continue on in her role of lead vocalist.
