Tom Gabel is the lead singer for Against Me!, a punk rock band based out of Florida.
And now he's coming out as a transgender.
Tom says he suffers from gender dysphoria and has begun to pursue living life as a woman by taking hormones and undergoing electrolysis.
He also said the hardest part of this process was telling his wife, with whom he has a daughter.
The miracle here is that she's been understanding and that they're staying together.
I commend Tom for coming out like he has. His journey will be long and difficult and I don't envy him. But I am thankful for his courage and openness thus far.
