It isn’t a secret that Lana Wachowski of the sibling filmmaking team responsible for The Matrix and V for Vendetta is transgender, but she has now made her first public appearance since transitioning. Joining her brother Andy and director Tom Tykwer in a YouTube clip, the three discuss their exciting new film Cloud Atlas, due out October 26. Though her gender isn’t even part of the video, many have unfortunately used the comments section to express many transphobic thoughts rather than applaud her for her courage and commitment to authenticity. Watch the clip:
