Matrix director Lana Wachowski promotes new film after transition

Via The Advocate

The director of my favorite movie The Matrix and The Matrix Reloaded (real Matrix fans like me pretend the third movie in the trilogy doesn’t exist) has transitioned and is the first director in tinsletown to come out as transgender.

Lana Wachowski announced that she was transitioning nearly a decade ago but now in promotions for a new film out October 26th named Cloud Atlas, she is seen with her brother and Matrix co-director Andy Wachowski, gearing up for the new film.  Lana appears in the trailer announcement with pink locked hair and a beaming and contagious smile.

Check out Lana’s big announcement below (if anyone can find a transcript to put in the comments I will be forever in your debt):
