Against Me! Singer Shows Off Her Closet on MTV's 'House of Style'

Transgender punk-rocker embraces her newfound fashion sense

By |

Against Me!'s transgender frontwoman Laura Jane Grace is featured on the latest episode of MTV's fashion-inclined documentary program House of Style. Filmed in her St. Augustine, Florida, home, Grace talks family, punk rock and the transition to wearing women's clothing.

The Secret Life of Transgender Rocker Tom Gabel

Grace – who was formerly known as Thomas James Gabel – came out as transgender in May in an interview with Rolling Stone. Since then, she has been living life as a woman and has taken the stage in women's clothing.

On House of Style, Grace curates her closet, which she shares with her wife, Heather. She explains a black Mossimo dress from Target to host Joan Smalls: "When you're younger and you're trans . . . you're so nervous when you go into a store, and it's about what's the first thing you see when no one's looking and you can put in your cart and get away with."

Grace also shows off a pair of high-end boots she recently wore onstage. "I think my feet were bleeding after I got offstage," she says, "but I looked fantastic, so that's all that mattered."

Grace has been hard at work on Against Me!'s next album, which will be titled Transgender Dysphoria Blues.
