Lana Wachowski is one of the most renowned and visionary directors today. With films like The Matrix, V for Vendetta, and now the much-anticipated Cloud Atlas about to hit theatres, it would seem Wachowski has it pretty good. However, life for the red-haired director has been anything but easy. For one of the first times, she is opening up about her painful childhood and her experiences growing up transgender. This week, she told her story to a packed crowd at the HRC Gala in San Francisco where she received the Visibility Award. To a teary-eyed and inspired crowd she talk of being a young boy that even considered suicide.
