Magnus Hirschfeld - Short Documentary

Although primariy focused on his work as a Gay Rights activist, this short documentary provides an excellent insight into the life and work of Hirschfeld.

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 worlds first Gender Identity Clinic. One of Hirschfeld’s first clients was Einer Wegener, who transitioned to become Lili Elbe, undergoing the worlds first documented male to female gender reassignment.
