I'm transgender." The second half of the directing duo known as the Wachowskis has come out as transgender. Lilly Wachowski, 48, sibling of Lana Wachowski, 50, issued a statement to Windy City Times that begins, "SEX CHANGE SHOCKER—WACHOWSKI BROTHERS NOW SISTERS!!!" Read the statement in full here. The Times reports that another outlet threatened to out the younger Wachowski, which led to the announcement, which, Lilly writes, she had been anticipating with "dread and/or eye rolling exasperation." "The 'news' has almost come out a couple of times," Wachowski writes. "Each was preceded by an ominous email from my agent — reporters have been asking for statements regarding the 'Andy Wachowski gender transition' story they were about to publish."
