FUSE TV - My Chemical Romance's Gerard Way Opens Up About Gender Identity

My Chemical Romance's former frontman Gerard Way has always been seen as an emo hero, always one to share his history with depression to help fans dealing with the same. While promoting his new solo album Hesitant Alien, the cult icon did a Reddit AMA that connected in a different way: by opening up about gender identity.

User mutiescum asked, "I’ve always been really inspired by your style and how you incorporate a lil bit of glam, a lil bit of femme into your aesthetic. In fact, the way you present on stage and in music videos helped me figure out my own gender identity as a teenager. Who are your style icons? What was your inspiration for messing with masculinity in the ways that you do?" Then Gerard responded in a touching and enlightening way.
