'Matrix' Director Lilly Wachowski Comes Out as Transgender

Lilly Wachowski, formerly known as Andy, is introducing herself to the world after coming out as transgender!

The 48-year-old filmmaker is one half of the Wachowski siblings duo and her sister Lana, 50, came out as transgender in 2012 after living as a woman for the previous twelve years. The duo director the three The Matrix movies, as well as 2012′s Cloud Atlas and 2015′s Jupiter Ascending.

Lilly came out in an eloquent essay in the Windy City Times just one day after she says a reporter from the Daily Mail showed up at her house and pressured her into giving him an interview and photo.

“I’m transgender,” Lilly wrote. “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,” she continued.
