In a new profile in The New York, the Wachowski siblings discuss the making of their new film, Cloud Atlas, and Lana's transition:
“I have a formative memory of walking through the girls’ line and hesitating, knowing that my clothes didn’t match,” Lana told me. “But as I continued on I felt I did not belong in the other line, so I just stopped in between them. I stood for a long moment with everyone staring at me, including the nun. She told me to get in line. I was stuck—I couldn’t move. I think some unconscious part of me figured I was exactly where I belonged: betwixt.” 

Lana Wachowski discusses her life and transition in-depth for the first time in this new profile from The New Yorker.
