Laura Jane Grace on Gender Dysphoria

Well I felt like pressure oftentimes which
is where the dysphoria would come in, it’s sort of like, fit this role, be this dude,
and that wasn’t me. So when you’re forced to fit into a gender role that creates extreme
dysphoria. There’s a misalignment with the way people
perceive me based on the way I perceive myself. Forty-one percent of trans people attempt
suicide. I’m part of that statistic. The hope is that eventually people will just
realize that there’s a whole wide world of gender variants, and sexual orientations,
and that people deserve to be happy with who they are and that it’s no big deal.
