'True Trans' Episode Eight Premieres On AOL

What is it like to navigate the dating world after coming out as transgender?

In this eighth episode of AOL's docuseries "True Trans," Against Me!'s Laura Jane Grace talks to a number of transgender and gender-variant individuals about the changing nature of relationships after transition -- both romantic and platonic. Transition affects every facet of an individual's life and is often not an easy process for anyone involved.

“I found that it’s easier to date people who don’t really identify -- period," Our Lady J discusses in the above video. "There’s just a fluidity that has to be there. And I think if you have a rigid definition of your sexuality you’re going to have a hard time being open to someone who breaks that definition."

Check out the video above to hear more transgender and gender-variant people discuss their changing relationships after transition. Missed the previous episodes in "True Trans"? Head here.
