DIVA CATCHES UP WITH THE GUITARWIELDING GODDESS LAURA JANE GRACE

In 2012, after more than 15 years of fronting Californian rock band Against Me!, Laura Jane Grace came out as a queer transgender woman, via a high-profile interview with Rolling Stone magazine. Since then, the now-iconic musician has released two new albums, fronted an Emmy Awardnominated web series (True Trans), endured the painful collapse of her second marriage and is now set to release a highly anticipated memoir, Tranny: Confessions Of Punk Rock’s Most Infamous Anarchist Sellout – ahead of a live UK tour this December.

DIVA: Your memoir is out this month. Exciting times!
