“The Matrix” director comes out as transgender


By Anna Peirano

“The Matrix” director Larry Wachowski, now Lana Wachowski, has become the first major Hollywood director to publicly come out as transgender.

Lana revealed she has transitioned while promoting her new, highly-anticipated film, “Cloud Atlas,” reports the New York Post. Wikipedia claims she actually completed the transition in 2008, but she has not really appeared publicly since then. In the clip below, with hair styled in pink dreadlocks, she says, “Hi, I’m Lana.” Otherwise, she does not address her transition. 

The clip features Lana with her brother, Andy Wachowski, and director Tom Tykwer. All three are directing “Cloud Atlas.”
