●TRANS PEOPLE IN 1921 IN BERLIN, GERMANY, IN FRONT OF THE INSTITUTE FOR SEXUAL SCIENCE, DURING THE FIRST INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS FOR SEX REFORM ON THE BASIS OF SEXOLOGY.
The Institute of Sexology (Institut für Sexualwissenschaft) in Berlin, Germany. Headed by Dr. Magnus Hirschfeld. The institute advocated sex education, contraception, the treatment of sexually transmitted diseases, and women's emancipation, and was a pioneer worldwide in the call for civil rights and social acceptance for homosexual and transgender people.
'Magnus Hirschfeld coined the term transsexualism, identifying the clinical category which his colleague Harry Benjamin would later develop in the United States. Transgender people were on the staff of the Institute, as well as being among the clients there. Various endocrinologic and surgical services were offered, including the first modern sex reassignment surgeries in the 1930s.'
