AOL has set the premiere date for “True Trans with Laura Jane Grace,” an original documentary series featuring transgender pioneer Laura Jane Grace.
The show focuses on Grace, the lead singer of the punk band Against Me, and her decision to come out as a transgender woman in 2012. Each episode will feature Grace and other transgender individuals across the country as they share stories about the harsh realities of growing up anxious about their own identities, and the difficult steps they took to finally make the transition.
Additional episodes will also highlight Grace’s life after the transition, showing her as a parent and her life as a musician.
Produced by AOL Studios, “True Trans” is part of the company’s 2014 DCNF programming slate. (Back when it was first announced in the spring, the show was titled “So Much More.”)
“True Trans” will run for 10 episodes across AOL On’s web and mobile destinations, beginning with the first four episodes, which will debut on October 10 in celebration of National Coming Out Day.
