It’s possible that as a punk band from a small town in Florida, Against Me! never thought their name would appear next to the word “Emmy.”
But today, the band’s frontwoman has received an Emmy nomination for her AOL Original series, True Trans with Laura Jane Grace, in the “New Approaches: Arts, Lifestyle, Culture” category.
“Just found out about my @aoloriginals web series “True Trans” being nominated for an Emmy Award and I am just speechless… Wow, just wow,” Grace said in a tweet.
The series tells the story of Laura Jane Grace, a transgender pioneer and lead singer of the punk band Against Me!, who came out as transgender at the height of her music career in 2012. It also introduces viewers to other transgender individuals that have remarkable and otherwise untold stories.
