My first year as a woman

A year ago, this story rocked my world, and my daughter’s, no pun intended.  Against Me, and Tom Gabel, were a huge, huge deal for us.  So, here’s her update on her journey, sent along by FB pal David Darling, and in Cosmo, no less:

During our shows this year, I was surprised by how many fans stuck by my band and how many came up to offer their support afterward. I met trans men and women from all walks of life, all at various points in their journeys. Many said I was an inspiration to them, but they are an inspiration to me. I had questions about transitioning, and my new friends were more than happy to share their tips! I don’t know a single other person who is trans where I live. But now I feel lucky to have friends around the world who share in the experience. Growing up, I never had a role model to show me that you can be trans and live a happy life. I hope that I can be that source of hope for someone out there who’s struggling.”
