Lana Wachowski Hopes Cloud Atlas Will Help The World Accept The Transgender Community

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayFilm FlickersInspiration

Lana Wachowski, one-third of the directing trio behind Cloud Atlas, gave a powerful speech about her transgender experience recently, but the famously shy filmmaker isn't done talking about the issue.

In fact, anybody seeing her newest movie should keep it in mind.

While Lana and her brother, Andy, normally avoid the press at all costs, she wasn't shy about comparing the characters in the $100 million indie to herself.

In a recent interview, she referenced a character named Sonmi who instigates a revolution and said:

"Like Sonmi, there are people who will spit on me, want to lynch me, want to crucify me. I am interested in engaging with the world, hopefully in a way that makes some people not as afraid of people like me or view people like me as these others who aren’t as human as them or different than them.”

It's taken Lana a long time to come out as the woman she's always been on the inside, but has taken even longer to start talking about her transformation.

Based on the wisdom she's had to share so far, we're pretty happy she did.
