You may know Candis Cayne as a voice of reason on E!’s I Am Cait, or if you’re gay and lived in New York City, or frequented Barracuda anytime within the past 15 years — but the iconic trans performer getting back to acting next week on an all-new episode of NBC’s medical drama Heartbeat.

In the episode, titled “Permanent Glitter,” she plays Ava, a trans woman diagnosed with breast cancer. When Dr. Alex Panttiere (Melissa George) recommends an aggressive treatment to save her life, Ava learns that the body she spent a lifetime transitioning into will never be the same.

“The storyline explores the hardships that all cancer patients must face – fear of death and the unknown, and the sometimes crippling uncertainty of what the future holds,” NBC says in a press statement.

“And through the character of Ava, we learn that it’s not a breast, or a scar, or our appearance that defines us, but our inner strength and courage.”

Good for NBC for offering a different perspective in healthcare! Make sure to check out Candis Cayne on Heartbeat, May 4 at 8/7c on NBC.

!! OMG, Lilly Wachowski, 48, sibling of Lana Wachowski and second Matrix director comes out as transgender !!

Lilly Wachowski, 48, sibling of Lana Wachowski, 50, issued a statement to Windy City Times that begins, “SEX CHANGE SHOCKER—WACHOWSKI BROTHERS NOW SISTERS!!!”

The Times reports an outlet threatened to out the younger Wachowski, which led to the announcement, which, Lilly writes, she had been anticipating with “dread and/or eye rolling exasperation.”

“The ‘news’ has almost come out a couple of times,” Wachowski writes. “Each was preceded by an ominous email from my agent — reporters have been asking for statements regarding the ‘Andy Wachowski gender transition’ story they were about to publish.”

Wachowski goes on to recount an incident in which a reporter from the Daily Mail showed up at her home to elicit an exclusive on her gender transition.

“After he had given me his card, and I closed the door it began to dawn on me where I had heard of the Daily Mail,” Wachowski writes. “It was the ‘news’ organization that had played a huge part in the national public outing of Lucy Meadows, an elementary school teacher and trans woman in the UK.”

Wachowski decided instead to come out on her own terms. “So yeah,” she writes. “I’m transgender.”

Congrats to Lilly! The world can absolutely use another incredible talent, sharing from a trans perspective and it is so wonderful that her sister has already been through a transition before her.
