The Against Me! singer will release Tranny: Confessions of Punk Rock’s Most Infamous Anarchist Sellout on 15 November 2016
Laura Jane Grace, singer of Against Me!, has shared an excerpt from her upcoming memoir Tranny: Confessions of Punk Rock’s Most Infamous Anarchist Sellout. The book, which was co-written with VICE‘s Dan Ozzi, is set for release on 15 November via Hachette and chronicles the singer’s career in punk leading up to her gender transition from male to female. In an excerpt from the book, shared on VICE today, Laura recounts a violent encounter with a former fan who had accused her of being a sellout.
“I snapped. At that moment, this guy was every person who’d ever called me a sellout, every punk in the crowd who’d given me the finger, every asshole who’d ever slandered my band’s name in a fanzine.” She writes, “He raised his cup to take a sip, but I knocked it out of his hand before it reached his lips, sending coffee splattering in all directions. I grabbed him by the back of the neck and slammed his face down, pinning his cheek against the wet counter. I was completely blacked out.”
