Trans musician Laura Jane Grace collaborates with Joan Jett

laurajanegracejoanjett2THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — Against Me singer and trans woman Laura Jane Grace collaborated with Joan Jett for a song on Jett’s latest CD, “Unvarnished”, which came out this week.

The song, “Soulmates to Strangers,” according to Jett in an interview in Rolling Stone, was an idea pitched by Grace to her following a conversation they had after doing a concert together last year. Jett’s band did gigs in the past with Against Me and she had always wanted to write with Grace.

Jett on Laura Jane Grace’s transition: I think it’s an extremely brave thing to do. It’s not easy to put yourself out there like that, but I’m sure she feels that she has no choice, the way she wants to live her life and the way she feels. I’m a friend no matter what.

    “Soulmates to Strangers” is one of my favorites. I think it should be the next single!

  2. “Soulmates to Strangers” is truly one of the best songs on the album. I sing it at the top of my lungs every chance I get! Oh, and Unvarnished debuted on THREE Billboard charts this week! Check it out!
