Larry Wachowski is now Lana Wachowski. She -- previously "he" -- is one of the directors of The Matrix trilogy and Cloud Atlas.

I've always been pro equal rights for everyone, but this video by Lana got me to take a step further, and donate $50 to the Human Rights Campaign. It's a very moving speech about how Lana never felt like she quite fit in growing up, and why she's now speaking publicly about it.

Thanks, Lana, for spurring me to take action in a cause I believe in.
