Congress just passed a drug testing law that has a lot of people outraged. Do you think this is wrong?

The singer will begin taking hormones and having electrolysis treatment to start his transition into becoming a woman.

“I’m going to have embarrassing moments, and that won’t be fun,” Gabel stated. “But that’s part of what talking to you is about – hoping people will understand, and hoping they’ll be fairly kind.”

Gabel’s wife Heather is sticking by his side and they will remain married. The couple have a 2-year-old daughter.

“For me, the most terrifying thing about this was how she would accept the news,” Gabel said of wife Heather. “But she’s been super-amazing and understanding.”

Gabel will eventually go by the name Laura Jane Grace.
