Historian Dustin Goltz characterized this group as having carried out 'the first advocacy for homosexual and transgender rights'." - Wikipedia. "Magnus Hirschfeld, a German Sexologist in the early 20th Century known as the 'Einstein of Sex' for his pioneering work in the field of sexology, was the first person to systematically describe and work with what he described as Transvestite and Transsexual people. He considered transsexualism to be a form of intersex condition, a view that is increasingly held by many today. Working with surgeons in Berlin through his 'Institute for Sexual Science', (Institut füer Sexualwissenschaft) he established and operated what was in practice the world's first Gender Identity Clinic. One of Hirschfeld’s first clients was Einer Wegener, who transitioned to become Lili Elbe, undergoing the world's first documented male to female gender reassignment. " - gendernetwork. 2 kg parcel
