Lilly's sister Lana (pictured) previously came out publicly as transgender in 2012.Lilly acknowledges that the Daily Mail was the newspaper which played a part in the national outing of Lucy Meadows, a teacher who took her own life in the UK in 2013. By making the statement to the Chicago based LGBT publication, she took control of her own coming out. "Being transgender is not easy. We live in a majority-enforced gender binary world. This means when you're transgender you have to face the hard reality of living the rest of your life in a world that is openly hostile to you. I am one of the lucky ones." Acknowledging support of her sister Lana, who publicly came out as transgender in 2012 following years of speculation, she concludes: "So yeah, I'm transgender. And yeah, I've transitioned...Without the love and support of my wife and friends and family I would not be where I am today."
