All bands go through transitions, but the evolution of anarchist four-piece Against Me! has been somewhat out of the ordinary.

You see, the lead singer and guitarist Laura Jane Grace, from Florida, used to be a man called Thomas.

She came out as transgender in early 2013 and the band has gone from strength to strength over since, releasing their sixth album, Transgender Dysphoria Blues, last summer.

Against Me! will play on Monday at the Wedgewood Rooms in Southsea.

Guest act Billy the Kid will also take the stage.

Tickets £14 at the venue or from wedgewood-rooms.co.uk. Doors open at 8pm.
