Lilly Wachowski, the sibling of trans filmmaker Lana Wachowski and a filmmaker herself, has come out as a trans woman.
Lilly and Lana have been making films together for decades, and Lana came out publicly as trans in 2012. Recently, they worked together on Sense8, a TV series which tackles trans issues.
Here’s one particularly moving section from the statement Lilly made:
“…my reality is that I’ve been transitioning and will continue to transition all of my life, through the infinite that exists between male and female as it does in the infinite between the binary of zero and one. We need to elevate the dialogue beyond the simplicity of binary. Binary is a false idol.”
This is fucking beautiful.
