Previously, Lana was married to Thea Bloom in 1993. This relationship looked flawless but was not from the inner core. The two could be seen attending different awards ceremonies and functions together. However, the couple started drifting away together from the beginning of 2002 and filed for a divorce. The case was finalized by the end of 2002.
After having a divorce from Thea Bloom, she stayed single for some time. Then, in 2009, she started her relationship with Karin Winslow. They had faced the same problem, which was getting divorced previously with their partner. Later, having an affinity for some quiet time, they got married in late 2009.
Lana Wachowski's Gender Transition!
Rumors sparkled Lana Wachowski transitioning in the early 2000s, though neither sibling spoke directly on the subject. In 2003, Gothamist reported the possible transition. In a 2007 interview, Joel Silver, the producer of numerous Wachowski films, said that the rumors concerning the growth were "all untrue," saying that "they just don't do interviews, so people make things up." Crew members working on Speed Racer said similar things in the event.

Lana completed her transition after Speed Racer's release in 2008 and by at least December 2010, after which trade magazines and newspapers referred to her as "Lana Wachowski" and to the duo as "Andy and Lana Wachowski." On some documents, her name is shown as Laurence Wachowski. In July 2012, Lana made her first public appearance after transitioning, in a video discussing the creative process behind Cloud Atlas.
Lana is the first major Hollywood director to come out as transgender. In a September 2012 interview with Aleksandar Hemon of The New Yorker, Lana described an incident in third grade at Catholic School when she was hesitant to join the boys' line and unconsciously accepted herself as belonging to the girls'.
In October 2012, Lana Wachowski received the Human Rights Campaign's Visibility Award. In her acceptance speech, she revealed that she had considered suicide during her youth because of her feelings of confusion about her gender identity. Her acceptance speech was one of the longest public appearances by either of the reclusive sisters.
Although she and Lilly had not publicly commented on her transitioning during the previous decade, she later explained that it was not because she was ashamed of it, nor had she kept it a secret from her family and friends. Rather, she quoted, the two are generally shy about the news media and prefer to maintain their privacy.
Comparing media exposure to losing one's virginity as an irreversible event that only happens once, the Wachowskis had tried to keep a low profile in the public eye. They feared losing their privacy and the ability to go to public places without being noticed and harassed as celebrities.
