Mara showed me a YouTube video of Lana Wachowski (formerly Larry Wachowski) accepting an award from the Human Rights Campaign. Wachowski and her brother directed “The Matrix” films and, with a third director, the upcoming “Cloud Atlas.” Another trans woman, Jennifer Leitham (formerly John Leitham), a professional jazz bass player, was the subject of a recent documentary about her transition, called “I Stand Corrected.” And of course, there’s Chaz Bono, who’s been out and proud for several years. I’m so glad that more trans people are coming out and setting examples for other trans people. Mara is doing that, but celebrities have a wider reach, because they’re, well, celebrities. I’m certainly proud of Mara. She’s a celebrity to me.
