Lana Wachowski receives the HRC Visibility Award
HRC President Chad Griffin presents Director and Producer Lana Wachowski with the HRC Visibility Award at the 2012 HRC San Francisco gala. Lana speaks of her journey and why now is the most important time to get involved in the fight for LGBT equality.
"Every human life represents a negotiation between the public and the private"
"Anonymity allows you access to civic space, to a form of participation in public life, to an egalitarian invisibility"
"Knowledge had the materiality, not unlike the materiality of a ladder, that could be used to gain access to places and worlds that were previously unimaginable".
