An ongoing story I’ve been tracking in these electronic pages is the rumored metamorphosis of The Matrix trilogy director Lana Wachowski.
Since 2003 there have been ‘did she or did she not transition‘ rumors flying from the Left Coast that were exacerbated by the 2010 Rolling Stone article about her that was printed without comment from the Wachowski siblings.
You would see the occasional sightings of Lana at various Hollywood events and LAX posted online or in various gossip blogs, but cricket chirping silence from either of the Wachowski siblings confirming or denying them. Even the folks that were cast in their movies such as The Matrix trilogy, Speed Racer or worked with them on projects such as V For Vendetta in which they were writing credited as The Wachowski’s were tight lipped about it.
Despite the increasing anecdotal and photographic evidence that said transition had already occurred, my personal thoughts on that is until a person acknowledges they are trans via press conference or interview, I consider them as a cis person until told otherwise..
The Wachowski siblings are set to premiere October 26 a new movie called Cloud Atlas that stars Halle Berry and Tom Hanks and have just released a trailer for it. But what has gotten peoples attention is this will be the first movie that you will see Lana Wachowski’s name in the movie credits instead of the old one.
Yep people, here’s the strongest evidence yet short of a press conference (which I wish she’d do) that Lana Wachowski is a #GirlLikeUs. As to whether she’ll do a coming out interview about it, that remains to be seen.
