Lilly Wachowski confirms The Matrix is a trans narrative



'I'm glad that people are talking about The Matrix movies with a trans narrative. I love how meaningful these movies are to trans people who come up to me and say 'These movies saved my life'.
When you talk about transformation, specifically in the world of science-fiction [...] the idea of the seemingly impossible becoming possible speaks to [trans people] so much. I'm grateful that I can be throwing [trans people] a rope to help them on their journey.'

'I'm glad that it has gotten out. That was the original intention. But the world wasn't quite ready for it then.'

Lilly speaks more on genre-bending, queerness, and the importance of expansive imagination in science fiction in the above video.
