Last week, Arcade fire shared a video for “We Exist,” which centered on a transgender character played by Andrew Garfield. Today, ​Against Me!‘s Laura Jane Grace has spoken out via Twitter against the video for not using “an actual “Trans” actor instead of Spider-Man.”

Grace herself is a transgender woman, and Against Me!‘s most recent album, Transgender Dysphoria Blues, is about the very issues “We Exist” aims to shine a light on.
