Laura Jane Grace to receive named credit for "Heart Burns" rather than her dead name.

Laura Jane Grace is the front-woman, singer, songwriter, and guitarist of the band Against Me! She came out as a transgender woman in an issue of 2012's Rolling Stone and has since stopped using her dead name and began going by Laura Jane Grace. To this day, however, her solo venture from before her name change/coming out is still listed as being by [deadname] and if you search "Laura Jane Grace" on Pandora nothing shows up, if you search "Laura Jane Grace" on Spotify "Heart Burns", her solo-album does come up but it is listed under her deadname. Same goes for Apple Music. Plus help me urge these companies to recategorize Laura's music under the name she's been using for over five years. If someone truly wants to find "Heart Burns" and only knows it under Laura's deadname they should be able to type THAT in and have Laura Jane Grace's name come up instead. It sets a positive precedent to other trans artists who have yet to come out that even if they come out mid-career these companies will be willing to make those changes on their behalf. Please help me urge Spotify, Apple Music, and Pandora to do just that. Thank you so much for your support.
