"In the absence of words to defend myself, without examples, without models, I began to believe voices in my head — that I was a freak, that I am broken, that there is something wrong with me, that I will never be lovable," Wachowski said at the Human Rights Campaign's gala dinner in San Francisco, where she accepted the LGBT organization's Visibility Award.
