Summary
In 1930 Danish artist Einar Wegener underwent a series of surgeries to live as Lili Ilse Elvenes (more commonly known as Lili Elbe). Her life story, Fra Mand til Kvinde (From Man to Woman), is the first popular full-length (auto)biographical narrative of a subject who undergoes genital transformation surgery. --
