Against Me! frontwoman Laura Jane Grace promised a protest of HB2 during her Saturday gig in NC, and did she ever deliver!
consequences of Sound reports On Sunday night, Against Me! played their scheduled show at the Motorco Music Hall in Durham, North Carolina, where frontwoman Laura Jane Grace protested the bill by taking a lighter to her birth certificate and watched it burst into flames — complete with a gleeful “Goodbye, gender!” adieu.
“I’m going to create an event around the show as a form of protest to say that despite whatever stupid laws they enact, trans people are not going to be scared,” Grace toldBuzzfeed back in April. “They are not going to go away.” Tonight certainly showed she stood by her words, and in the most punk way possible.
