Cases of gender change are increasingly becoming public, because this vivid theme is a favorite source of gossip for many yellow publications. Typically, these publications tell of a person who is not known, who at once decided that his own body is not the most suitable place for his inner sense of himself.

We also want to recall a few people who decided to take such a serious step, only on one condition - these people became famous even before their operation.

Let's start, perhaps, with the most famous case of gender change among celebrities. Larry and Andy Wachowski are familiar to every film lover, after all the brothers (at that time) shot the famous trilogy "The Matrix". Wachowski were born in a Polish-American family in Chicago. Their mother was a nurse, and father was a businessman. According to the brothers themselves, their father was a convinced atheist, and mother was a Catholic who converted to shamanism. The peculiar religious atmosphere in the family may have influenced the future of Larry and Andy.

Rumors that Larry decided to change gender, appeared in the early 2000s, but there were no official comments on this matter. Coming out as a transgender woman Larry, or already Lana Wachowski, did in July 2012, becoming the first open transgender person among the largest Hollywood directors. And four years later Andy Wachowski also made a public coming out as a transgender woman, taking the name Lilly. She did this in response to numerous threats of forcible disclosure of information about transgenderity by the Daily Mail.
