In collaboration with ASUW A&E, ASUW Queer Student Commission, and the Q Center at the University of Washington on November 22nd, lead singer and transgender-activist Laura Jane Grace of the band Against Me! will be speaking and performing an acoustic set at the University of Washington. As one of the first and most prominent rock musicians to come out as transgender, Laura Jane Grace is at the forefront of trans-activism. In 2012, Laura wrote an op-ed in Rolling Stone magazine, chronicling her journey over the past few years. And more recently the band Against Me! released the critically acclaimed album “Transgender Dysphoria Blues.” Against Me! is set to tour behind the new record in 2014 with an attitude perhaps best summed up by their lyrics: “No more troubled sleep. There’s a brave new world raging inside of me.”
