Laura Jane Grace of Against Me! writes for Noisey about transphobic violence within the punk community.
Just as the tour was ending, I heard about a truly awful situation Stephanie said she encountered at one of her own shows just days after I had seen her. I was left feeling disheartened and realizing just how small of an impact this perceived tipping point of trans visibility has had on the world and on the average trans persons everyday experience and that there is still so much work to do before real progress can be equated.

I asked Stephanie if she’d have a conversation about what happened and she agreed

Laura Jane Grace mashed up Michael McDonald and The Cure for AV Club.
While we were there, she played a stripped-down version of “Pretty Girls (The Mover)” and gave us some insight to the song’s creation and ongoing evolution. After that, though, she offered up a truly unexpected bonus track: a plaintive take on Michael McDonald’s 1982 hit “I Keep Forgettin’” with a drum loop of The Cure’s “Close To Me” as the backbeat.

Laura Jane Grace, of Against Me!, writing for Noisey:
I made three laps around the world last year and every single airport interaction always included a "sir" addressed to me. Checking in, security, passport control, boarding, de-boarding, getting a cab, checking into the hotel, checking out of the hotel, the security guard at the club, some bartender, a waitress, some drunk dickhead telling me I look like Mark Wahlberg in Rock Star instead of a woman, another bartender, another taxi, and then do it all again the next day. Shoot me in the fucking head.

Laura Jane Grace of Against Me! talked to Time about plans for the future, including a new book, new album, and a live album.
I’ve been working on a book for the last few years, and most books these days are usually around 100,000 words. My book that I’ve been working on is a collection of tour journals. I’ve been keeping tour journals since I was 17 years old. I transcribed them all, and it’s a million words. I have a lot of cutting down to do, and after I got through transcribing them, I kind of got to a point where I was like, “I need to get the f-ck away from a computer, I don’t know how to narrow this down.” These songs really tell the story I’m trying to tell. The setlists I’ve...

Laura Jane Grace of Against Me! talks with Stereogum.
Once we started playing this year and we realized how good it was — you know, having people from Rocket From The Crypt and International Noise Conspiracy in the band is pretty fucking cool — it just felt like it would be an absolute and total shame if we don’t make a record with this lineup. Obviously the last record was really me just raking myself over the coals emotionally, so I just really want to make a fun record — something that’s just really fun to fucking play and go on tour with. That might not sound like something terribly ambitious, but I think it could be great.

It seems after being "blasted" by monitor feedback multiple times at the Against Me! show tonight, Laura Jane Grace smashed the monitor, left the stage, and went outside to play instead. She's since apologized on Twitter for cutting the show short.
It was kind of funny to see that monitor guy run away from me though. I'm not Rayon from Dallas Buyers Club mother fucker. I will come at U.

Elle have profiled Against Me!'s Laura Jane Grace.
Something that was important to Grace was showcasing the wide spectrum of people who identify as transgender, and dispelling any myths that any or all members of the community are exactly the same. “I really made an effort to talk not only to people who were much further along in their transition—someone like [MMA fighter] Buck Angel, who transitioned in the '80s—[but also] people who have transitioned in the last couple years," she says. "To just really showcase the spectrum [and to show] that it’s not like ‘This is what happens when you transition. This is where you end.’" Though in some instances, Grace says, there was some “selfish...

Check out another interview with Laura Jane Grace over on MTV. There is no such thing as too much Against Me! news.
“It was really reassuring just hearing how varied everyone’s end-definition of what gender means to them is,” Grace told MTV News. “Reassuring in my own way in still trying to figure that out. Having other people say it who are further along in their transition or further along in life — [who] just have more experience — hearing them be like, ‘Well, I don’t really know, I’m still kind of figuring it out,’ was like, ‘OK, you know, I’m in a good place.’”

Laura Jane Grace of Against Me! recently sat down for a video interview with Marc Lamont Hill for The Huffington Post.
"I started playing in a band when I was 19 years old and started touring heavily, and that swept up a big chunk of my life and it was really easy for me to compartmentalize certain parts of myself and not think about certain things," Grace said. "Then it all built to a boiling point where I had to address what I was going through in order to continue to survive as a person."

Laura Jane Grace talked with Exclaim about an upcoming Against Me! live album, book, and documentary.
"It's crazy, because at this point, having six studio albums and a bunch of EPs, there are almost a good hundred Against Me! songs," says Grace about the upcoming live album and their storied career. "To have the lineup we have right now and to feel really strong about the way we're playing and to see how those songs that we've been playing for a long time have evolved over however many years... The idea of taking the best of the best and putting together a solid 25- to 30-song record that can reintroduce some songs in their present form and really try to capture what happens when we're...
