Good for her. I hope she finds happiness in a body that finally fits her mind.

Oh man I actually used to love their music and this somewhat saddens me honestly.

I don't know the band. If she isn't the lead singer, it shouldn't change the sound too much. If she is, well, I don't know where they will go from here.

Duh! I guess she is/was.

Re: Against Me! Singer Tom Gabel Comes Out As Transgender.

There actually was a male to female transgendered singer in the 70's and 80's named Wayne County, who became Jayne County. She was not attractive either way. See below her two biggest hits! She had some funny lyrics!

I cannot remember her band's name and she never got really famous. The rumor back then was that she became a singer for money for her surgeries.

The Electric Chairs! Of course! Found, "Toilet Love!" Enjoy!

And, "Fuck Off!" This is your lucky day!

Also found this I don't recall hearing before. My lucky day!

And, if you are still watching, a video of Jayne covering an Electric Prunes song.

definitely not the "first major rock star"

Good luck to her I guess, though Against Me still sucks

Re: Against Me! Singer Tom Gabel Comes Out As Transgender.

One could hardly call Wendy Carlos a rock star. Excellent ground breaking musician no doubt, but not rock star.

Their's also Genesis P Orridge of Throbbing Gristle but I think he prefers the term "Pan-gendered".
