Lilly Wachowski Makes First Public Appearance at GLAAD Awards in Beverly Hills

'Matrix' Filmmaker Comes Out
Lilly Wachowski (formerly known as Andy) has come out as transgender.

Transgender director, Lilly Wachowski, stepped out on the red carpet for the first time after leaving behind the former identity of Andy Wachowski.

The event was last night’s GLAAD Media Awards held in Beverly Hills, California and sponsored by Ketel One Vodka.

Wachowski took home the prize for Outstanding Drama Series for her work on the sci-fi Netflix series, Sense8.

Playing host for the evening was Ross Matthews, who did his best to make attendee Nick Jonas blush by reading a poem in dedication to the hunky pop star.

Taylor Swift acted as the surprise guest of the night when she showed up on stage to present the Stephen F. Kolzack Award to Orange Is The New Black star Ruby Rose.
