Against Me!'s Laura Jane Grace: Coming Out Ended My Relationship With My Dad
Against Me! singer Laura Jane Grace says that coming out as transgender in a recent issue of Rolling Stone "completely ended my relationship with my father."
In a new interview with MTV News, Grace is asked about her father's response to the article and says, "He tried calling, I tried calling him back but then he wouldn't call me back. I wrote him a really long email, and I apologized and told him the way he was portrayed in the Rolling Stone article was a little harsh. I apologized for that, I apologized for not telling him in person before, that I felt like a total coward for that. I explained about gender dysphoria, I told him if he had any questions, there were books I could point him in the direction of reading. He wrote me back maybe a two or three sentence-long email that just said, 'There was something very lacking in your presentation. For now the door is open, but we'll see.' And that's it."
she failed and hurt her dad by not telling him before everyone else on the planet. It doesn't sound like the coming out ended the relationship, but her doing something which resulted in a need for her to apologize. Of coarse I didn't read the book or link, just the OP..
