By: Jessica Marren - Published: Jun 3, 2013 • References: youtube
Lana Wachowski delivers a riveting Human Rights Campaign speech as she accepts the visibility award for bringing awareness to gender stereotyping.

During this Human Rights Campaign speech, Lana Wachowski is poised, clever and honest. She talks openly about the feelings of rejection and acceptance that are so familiar to transgendered people. One of the most insightful moments of her speech is when she asks people to think about "the pathology of a society that refuses to acknowledge the spectrum of gender in the exact same blind way they refuse to see a spectrum of race or sexuality".

Lana Wachowski reminds people that humans have responsibilities to one another. She says the relationship we each have surrounding the feelings of visibility and invisibility are complex and should not be ignored. Stats for Having An Invisible Identity Trending: Older & Mild
