LANA WACHOWSKI MAKES BEING TRANSGENDER LOOK LIKE FUN

marc-jacobs-lana-newcut

Before Caitlyn Jenner there was Lana Wachowski. Lana, 50, is the first major Hollywood director to come out as transgender. Lana and her brother Andy Wachowski are responsible for the Matrix film franchise and much more. We find Lana fascinating because she is so atypical. Instead of glamming up with tons of hair and makeup and cleavage, she chooses to look more like a funky pop star or eccentric Diane Keaton type. She is WAY more imaginative than most transwomen – hence the bright colored dreadlocks. Marc Jacobs was inspired to feature her prominently in his Spring 2016 campaign.

CAITLYN JENNER: “IF YOU LOOK LIKE A MAN IN A DRESS, IT MAKES PEOPLE UNCOMFORTABLE”

142773PCN_Caitlyn29cut

Truer words were never spoken, but when Caitlyn said this in a Time magazine interview, she got nasty backlash from the transgender world – she was described as “transphobic” and one nitpicking commenter called her “The Donald Trump of the trans community.” Caitlyn apologized profusely but we don’t think she should have. She seems to have an honest and realistic view from inside the trans world and they have no business turning on her. A big man in a dress IS scary and it will be awhile before people get used to it. So far she’s done more to make transgender community acceptable than anyone we know.

A LITTLE HAPPINESS FOR CHAZ BONO

145306PCN_Danish23(1cut)

We can’t REMEMBER the last time Chaz Bono looked this happy. Cher’s transgender son has been melancholy lately because he’s convinced that women are “repulsed” by him. He’s been basically alone since he and his fiancee Jennifer Elia broke up in 2011. Chaz turned up at the premier of The Danish Girl with blonde actress Sarah Schreiber, and looks like he’s having fun for a change. Being transgender is in no way easy.

BRUCE JENNER IS NO HERO

brucecut-665x385

Yes, Bruce was and is an athletic hero, but to call him a hero for transitioning into a “woman” is an insult to genuine heroes. Heroes are brave women and men with high ideals who risk their own safety to help others, not themselves. Calling Jenner a “hero” tarnishes the title for people who actually EARNED it – like Susan B Anthony, Martin Luther King, Sally Ride, Rosa Parks, Gloria Steinem, and many who served in the armed forces. Having a sex change is like having plastic surgery – it’s something you do for yourself to make YOURSELF happier. And everybody is free to do it. Bruce egotistically claimed on TV “I’m going to change the world.” He’s changing HIS world. It’s nice to see Bruce following his dreams, but they are hardly heroic.

MODEL ANDREJA PEJIC IS NOW OFFICIALLY A GIRL

It’s transgender model Andreja Pejic (formerly Andrej) leaving the Chateau Marmont, and she seems to be looking for action. It’s hard to believe she didn’t find plenty of it at the bar. We wonder how many of the guys that hit on her realized she’s transgender. Or cared.

WHO WOULD HAVE GUESSED HE WAS ONCE A WOMAN?

Take a close look at this magazine cover. The model on the cover was born a woman. Who even KNEW there was a magazine for transgender female to male people? Aydian Dowling, 27, documented his own transition on his YouTube channel. He’s been married to his wife Jenilee for three years now and has his own clothing line aimed at helping transitioning.

BRUCE JENNER SEX CHANGE: THE ULTIMATE REALITY SHOW

127908PCN_KimBruce17cut

You’ve got to hand it to the Kardashians for making reality shows insanely popular. No one has gone farther to corral an audience. Bruce Jenner’s potential transgender surgery and new life is going to be a ratings BONANZA for the E! channel. Who wouldn’t be curious enough to watch THAT? We figured Bruce would not go through this process without documenting the “journey” and getting handsomely paid for it. It’s not often that a well known sports hero and public figure chooses to change sexes. And of course it will greatly enhance the transgender community.

EDDIE REDMAYNE: IT’S NOT EASY BEING A WOMAN

Eddie Redmayne all smiles as he leaves at Jimmy Kimmel on Tuesday.

We’re not sure how we feel about “The Theory of Everything” star Eddie Redmayne playing a transgender woman in his next move The Danish Girl. It would be far more engrossing to have an actual transgender woman play the part. Eddie’s character is based on the first woman to have sex reassignment surgery back in 1931 so the fashions and visuals will be pleasant to look at. It’s hard to beat Felicity Huffman’s transgender character in Transamerica but Eddie is already learning how to move and gesture like a woman. Someday there might be a movie about an Olympic sports hero who had sex change surgery.

BRUCE JENNER’S TRANSITION: KRIS WILL NEITHER CONFIRM NOR DENY

bruce-face-vh1-cut

No one gets a bigger kick out of Bruce Jenner’s sex-change torment than his ex-wife Kris. If Bruce is NOT headed toward transgenderville, Kris could have nipped the rumors in the bud after he had his Adam’s apple surgery. She just giggled and didn’t say a word. As the long hair and nail polish fueled more rumors, Kris scoffed at the stories but didn’t downright deny them. Now that Bruce is on the cover of In Touch and they photoshopped makeup on his face, Kris manages to be politically correct and still implicate Bruce by saying “It’s just mean- whether or not it’s true!”

MODEL ANDREJ PEJIC IS NO LONGER A MAN

It’s been fun writing about androgynous model Andrej Pejic as his career blossomed in both the male and female fashion world. But androgyny isn’t enough for the Serbian born Australian raised model. Andrej has had sexual reassignment and changed his name to Andreja. A documentary was filmed of the process – the bottom photo is a still of Andreja in her hospital bed recovering. The transgender male to female surgical procedures were performed by Dr Toby Meltzer in Scottsdale, Arizona. Cost: $23,000 to $28,000. Andreja says she will only model as a female from now on. We can’t help but wonder if she will be as much in demand as a model now that she’s just another “female.”

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT
    |

    Love him or hate him, this guy is a loudmouth who doesn’t hesitate to tell it like he sees it- but there’s one thing he NEVER talks about: his prostate problem. Long story short: he LEAKS! He likes to project an image of macho virility, but under his custom made suits are custom made “diapers.” He’s VERY self-conscious and has absorbent but undetectable “panty liners” sewn into all his underwear, to avoid wet spots. Thanks to his arrogant behavior, he has more than a few enemies and he’s terrified his secret will be exposed and he’ll be forever ridiculed!
