( 4UMF NEWS ) Matrix Director Comes Out As Transgender:
In the trailer, Lana introduces the film with her brother, Andy Wachowski, and director Tom Tykwer.
“Hi, I’m Lana,” she says with her hair styled in pink dreadlocks.
Lana’s personal life has been a source of headline fodder for years now.
In 2002, Wachowski was going through a bitter divorce from wife Thea Bloom, as People magazine reported at the time. In 2003, a date Wachowski took to the Cannes Film Festival told the British tabloids that the director was a “cross-dresser.”
That same year the Gothamist reported on a column written by movie journalist Dave Poland, alleging that Wachowski was in the process of undergoing a “sex change”.
“Every indication I have says that Larry Wachowski is now in the process of changing his sex,” Poland wrote. “Dressing in public like a woman, taking female hormones and yes, having a sex change operation.”
