Laura Jane Grace, the Against Me! frontwoman formerly known as Tom Gabel, is undergoing the biggest transformation of her LIFE and she's finally talking about it on camera!
The out and proud transexual is in the process of becoming the woman she's always known she would grow up to be, so we could not be more impressed by her courage.
In the first interview since coming out to the world through Rolling Stone, Laura talks about the overwhelmingly positive support from friends, fans and family, as well as explaining how Madonna made her realize that she was a woman trapped in a man's body.
On a sad note, Laura's father hasn't been as accepting of her lifestyle, but she doesn't seem to broken up about it. In fact, she shares that she's just happy to FINALLY be "in control" of her life and openly admitting that she's a transexual "is the most empowering thing" she's ever experienced.
Ch-ch-check out the incredible interview with MTV (above) to get a better understanding of what Laura and many others like her go through every day as they continue the transition from male to female.
