Axis of Awesome lead singer comes out as trans

Jordan Raskopolous has been making us laugh for years with musical comedy band Axis of Awesome, especially with this viral video Four Chords song.

But over the past two years or so, fans have wondered why Jordan had lost the beard.

‘There’s a very good reason why my beard is never, ever coming back and that reason is that I am transgender,’ Jordan says.

‘No shit! That’s right, I’m a girl. I’m transgender.’

Speaking in a frank, funny and heartfelt video, she added: ‘Gender dysphoria is something I can remember dealing with ever since I was a kid but I learned early on to be ashamed of it, and to keep it a secret, and I did a really, really good job of hiding it from everybody – including from myself in a lot of ways.

‘But towards the end of 2014, while we were on tour in the UK, I reached a point where I couldn’t deny it anymore. Sitting by myself in a hotel room, I decided that if I wanted a shot at a happy life and a happy future then I needed to transition.’
