Big Outings

Sarah McBride

There were two notable transgender outings this week.

"Against Me! singer Tom Gabel reveals plans to begin living as a woman in the new issue of Rolling Stone. Gabel ... will soon begin the process of transition, by taking hormones and undergoing electrolysis treatments. Gabel will eventually take the name Laura Jane Grace, and will remain married to her wife Heather." Read all about it here.

Tim McBride, American University student body president, came out as transgender. Tim now goes by the name Sarah and was interviewed on Washington, DC television station WJLA. Sarah also wrote about her outing on The Huffington Post.

    I've been a casual fan of Against Me! for years. They have a very raw, punk, anarchistic sound (at least their early stuff) and have a sizeable following. I hope the new Laura stays in the spotlight and continues to produce her music.

  2. Good for them! Bravo!!

  3. I wish I looked as good as Sarah.
