“ You can’t not learn from writing a book like mine”


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!

LAURA JANE GRACE: Yeah. Any artist will tell you, though, that space between when you finish something and when it actually gets released is like, the worst [laughs]. You’re just waiting for life to move forward; it’s a weird limbo zone.
