Trans musician Laura Jane Grace collaborates with Joan Jett

“Soulmates to Strangers” is one of my favorites. I think it should be the next single!

LEXIE CANNES STATE OF TRANS

laurajanegracejoanjett2THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — Against Me singer and trans woman Laura Jane Grace collaborated with Joan Jett for a song on Jett’s latest CD, “Unvarnished”, which came out this week.

The song, “Soulmates to Strangers,” according to Jett in an interview in Rolling Stone, was an idea pitched by Grace to her following a conversation they had after doing a concert together last year. Jett’s band did gigs in the past with Against Me and she had always wanted to write with Grace.

Jett on Laura Jane Grace’s transition: I think it’s an extremely brave thing to do. It’s not easy to put yourself out there like that, but I’m sure she feels that she has no choice, the way she wants to live her life and the way she feels. I’m a friend no matter what.

  1. I know you were just using the article title that your source site used..but I’m still pretty disappointed that they/you felt the need to put “Trans” in front of “musician.” Mention it in the article? Sure. They played Androgynous together after all. But having it be the first word you see makes it feel like it’s some sort of sideshow to me..Anyway rant over. Go Joan!

  2. Thanks for the reblog.

    Laurana, the word trans needs to be in the headline if my mostly trans audience is to read it. Not everyone knows who Laura Jane Grace is. Thanks for the comment!
