    One thought on “Tranny: Confessions of Punk Rock's Most Infamous Anarchist Sellout”

    1. Growing up a suburban punk rock teenager, I remember the horror and betrayal I felt the first time Against Me’s radio hit single “I Was a Teenage Anarchist” came through the speakers of my crappy Mercury Sable. I felt the knife twist in my heart with every chord, every word, as my one time hero Tom Gabel reminisced about a rebellious punk rock past. “Do you remember when you were young and you wanted to set the world on fire?” Gabel wailed in an overly catchy chorus, the nail in the co [...]

    2. I finished this book this week. I enjoyed it. But I’m not entirely sure what to say about it.From the start, I am a fan of her band, Against Me! I’m still a fan even if it becomes just another name for what she does. But I’m not a huge fan. I know bigger fans, who have seen her (in both fake Tom and real Laura phases) than I have. AM! Is like a top 20 band for me and I was trying to think if another similar artist in my own esteem wrote something would I have preordered it sight unseen six [...]

    3. I inhaled this audiobook. It was like a great behind the music documentary with the band leader secretly struggles with gender dysphoria. I had never heard of the band or Laura Jane Grace until a Rolling Stone's article and it left me immediately wanting to read Grace's memoir. She does an excellent job narrating as she tells years of struggle through the punk scene, trying to make it with her band, and gender dysphoria. You don't need to have any knowledge or interest in the punk scene or the b [...]

    4. "I don't want to see the world that way anymore. I don't want to feel that weak and insecure.""Tranny" isn't just the best book I read this year. It's a rock memoir for the ages. Discounting my status as a fervent Against Me! fan--a passion that started long after their underground success or mainstream flash--it's still the type of book that invites all readers seeking a shockingly transparent and utterly human exposé. Even if I had never downloaded a copy of "I Was a Teenage Anarchist" in 201 [...]

    5. The inclusion of the journal entries is very interesting and revealing. I wish Laura had found people or sources to help her understand her transition sooner. I found myself yelling at the book from time to time because of the terminology that she was using to refer to herself, but I very much understand that this was the only rhetoric she knew to understand herself. This is why LGBTQ visibility is so important--if she had better, more loving and understanding terms with which to understand hers [...]

    6. This book was clunkily written and too long. I admit I'm not an Against Me fan, not that I don't like their music, but the band just passed me by. I was interested in learning about Laura's experience transitioning while the lead singer for a punk rock band. And it's not that I didn't get that from this book, it's that Laura comes across as a real jerk. Sure, she was going through some hard times and that can make even the best of us act like assholes, but the book is being written after the fac [...]

    7. I first heard selections of Laura's autobiography material when she read from her diaries on a solo tour a year or so ago. Her entries are remarkably honest and powerful and moved me to tears. The book weaves the journal entries with song lyrics that she was writing at the time and her play-by-play of her career and personal life. My two cents: After the release of their (2nd?) album, (maybe sooner), Against Me! would get heckled by punks at their shows for selling out. These punks sound like pr [...]

    8. I'm not a super fan of Against Me!, the punk band whose singer is now publicly a woman. But I do think Transgender Dysphoria Blues is a fuckin' warhead of a song; it's been on my "favorites" Spotify list for, geez, a couple years now. She's got a kickass story and I would like to hear more of it.ooh, I just found an acoustic version of that song. Not as good, I like this (and everything else) loud, but her voice sounds great on this version.

    9. Laura Jane Grace is an incredible storyteller but her's is a story that is clearly not yet finished, and it shows. Much of the book flies through as a chronological retelling, with journal entries often wedged in awkwardly. It gives an intriguing backstory to the early days of Against Me! but feels pressed for time in its final chapters. It's an enjoyable, if not entirely satisfying read. It feels like the start of something rather than a recounting of it.

    10. I have been a huge fan of Against Me! since their Fat Wreck Chords label days. I loved the sounds as much as the styles and personalities of the band members. When I heard of Tom's transition to Laura Jane I wondered what would happen to the band. Transitioning is hard by itself but public transitioning adds an extra layer of difficulty. InTranny,Lauraattemptsto give a raw and uncensored account of what life was like before and after undergoing a public M2F transition. I found that the first hal [...]

    11. I won a copy of this from , and here's my (somewhat late) review of it.I was curious to check out Laura Jane Grace's memoir for two reasons: I'm interested in punk music and politics, and I also really want to read more non-fiction, particularly post-election, to get more perspectives from others, especially those in groups that the US tends to marginalize.I got into punk via Plan-it-X Records around 2008 when I was 18 (a late bloomer to the scene, I know). Plan-it-X released one of Against Me!' [...]

    12. I like to read books that tell people's stories; I find that it is very hard to alienate or hate people when you know where they are coming from. I feel like this is something more people need to do. Earlier this year I read "Becoming Nicole", about a transgender teen and her family. Let's just say that reading "Tranny" was not the same experience. Honestly it was basically a rock and roll memoir about someone who just happened to be transgender. The majority of the book was about the author's e [...]

    13. Firstly I had never heard of the band (Against Me! - critics call them this generation's The Clash) or of the transgender band leader, Laura Jane Grace, until I'd seen her interviewed about her book on The Daily Show and I felt intrigued to find out her story. And what a fantastic, heart felt and honest story it is. Following her struggles of growing up as a boy, delinquency, drug use while trying to become a successful punk band (against the back lash of militant punks that considered them sell [...]

    14. No book has ever left me feeling so raw and so completely emotionally shattered- and that's a good thing. Laura Jane Grace manages to be other worldly while somehow also being so down to earth she's buried herself alive. Against Me! has played a huge part in my life (to the extent of tattooing an album cover on my arm) and this book just took a chainsaw to what I thought I knew about them. The struggles, disappointment, fights, depression, pain, regrets, and misfortune talked about in Tranny are [...]

    15. Looking back at the books I’ve read this year, I’ve definitely been on a memoir kick, most of them punk rock memoirs, and this is among the best I read. One thing I love about Laura Jane Grace is her intelligent, compelling lyrics, but making a good song is very different from making a good book. I have had to abandon some of my favorite musicians’ autobiographies for being boring, or had to struggle through them because they were so disorganized. I knew from the first page, though, even t [...]

    16. Don't read a trans woman's biography hoping to find out that there's happy endings for #girlslikeus. This is a pretty rough read all the way through but it's a story I'm somewhat familiar about, a story about hating what you see in the mirror, about dealing with suicidal depression and dysphoria and what happens when those two mix together and how removing one doesn't get rid of the other but makes it not so bad. It's a great read, truly interesting and somewhat reassuring as a fucked up punk tr [...]

    17. Laura Jane Grace holds nothing back in this wonderful memoir. From her personal journey to the story of what it's like to be in a band just trying to make it, this is a very layered and emotional story that I absolutely loved reading.

    18. Maybe like 3.5? A fascinating window into being in a successful band that got its start in anti-establishment circles. It reminded me of Carrie Brownstein's memoir about Sleater Kinney. It's not your average transition memoir, since the bulk of the material has to do with Against Me before she came out. It's only really in the epilogue that she talks about being trans. She is brutally honest about all of her experiences and doesn't try to paint herself in a flattering light, trans stuff at the e [...]

    19. A good read for Against Me! fans, music aficionados, and those curious about transitioning in adulthood and what a lived transgender dysphoric experience is like. It punched me in the gut over and over again. The chance to read her journals and watch her grapple with her relationship with herself was emotional, impactful, fascinating.

    20. I've always been a casual fan of Against Me! but started following Laura Jane Grace more closely after her transition in 2012. This book was an intimate journey through her life, with illuminating journal entries offering insights into exact periods of time. The writing was at times exquisitely beautiful but at others, it fell a little short. It was interesting to see the transition between personalities as Laura became "her" – I was pretty uneasy with some of the things that she did/said as T [...]

    21. This book is everything the band Against Me! and its frontwoman Laura Jane Grace also are: powerful, original, dedicated, full of painful snarls as well as beautiful harmonies, honest to a fault, brave as hell, and can't-turn-away compelling, with fear and anger blossoming into determination and (pun unintended, I think?) grace. Plus, it has a great beat and you can dance to it!You don't have to be concerned with the plight of transgender people or even a fan of Laura and Against Me! to enjoy th [...]

    22. It isn't a manifesto on Against Me!'s development/philosophy/lyrics/etc, but it traces the narrative of Laura Jane Grace's life fantastically. While the final section dealing with her transition is relatively brief compared to the rest of the story, it's a powerful conclusion to her story so far, and has overshadowed the rest of the book in my impression of it. I especially appreciate how the process of transition is a messy, conflicted one for LJG. You don't hear about that side of transitionin [...]

    23. I liked this book and enjoyed Grace's story, but it was not what I was expecting. This memoir is 90% about being a punk rock musician, and 10% about being transgender. I understand that Grace's childhood and teen experiences factor into her experience as a transgender woman. But I got to read about every tiny moment and detail about touring with a punk rock band, and when she comes out to her mother as transgender, she just writes that they had a long phone conversation and she came out to her m [...]

    24. Thanks for the rec and gift Becky! Great writing, love her use of her journals. Very wonderful journey into the life of an artist, and then some!

    25. What an interesting life. I know the point of this book was about coming out but I got more out of the struggle of the career and the constant touring. I learned a lot about what life on the road is like and how hard it is to become successful in the music industry. I felt bad for Laura and all the sneaking around she had to do in her life just to feel like personjust to feel whole. And I think about what it must have felt like for those close to her once they were faced with the reality of the [...]

    26. Was hoping it would be more "transcendent," pun intended. I suppose its hard not to be a self centered jerk when you are a rock star but at least she seems somewhat self aware that she was like that. I did enjoy getting a view into the world of album deals with Fat Wreck and the biggies at the rise of file sharing and digital media. I guess I was hoping for a more thoughtful look at what its like to grow up trans and deny yourself, then set yourself free.

    27. Laura, her transition and her music will always be huge for me, but I think she severely rushed this book. Unfortunately, she comes across as an asshole. That's just punk rock I guess? From the early days of Against Me! to coming out, considering the emotions of others is not her strong suit. The prose leaves a lot to be desired--What was Dan Ozzi doing? Her journals are the best part.
