The other half of celebrated filmmaking duo, Lilly Wachowski (formerly Andy) just announced that she’s transgender, just like her sister Lana. The celebrated duo gave us the Matrix, V for Vendetta, Cloud Atlas and a few other memorable works. Here’s a part of her statement:
“So yeah, I’m transgender.
And yeah, I’ve transitioned.
I’m out to my friends and family. Most people at work know too. Everyone is cool with it. Yes, thanks to my fabulous sister they’ve done it before, but also because they’re fantastic people. Without the love and support of my wife and friends and family I would not be where I am today.”
Unfortunately, she was practically forced to come out before she felt was the right time – with several media which almost published the story in the recent months, it was UK’s Daily Mail that spilled the beans. Not wanting to drag her name in the mud and battle with tabloids, Lilly decided to come out with a statement and end the rumors surrounding her gender reassignment surgery.
