In 1930s Copenhagen, a Danish painter named Einar Wegener was asked by his wife to pose in women's clothing for a portrait. That event began a struggle between his known male persona and an emerging female self. He began leading a double life and doctors eventually labeled him as hysterical. But he did finally undergo a series of dangerous, experimental operations to be successfully reborn as Lili Elbe.

A new edition of the book, Man Into Woman, compiled from Lili's own letters and manuscripts, is available now.  It contains a forward written by a modern day transsexual.

There will also be a film based on David Ebershoff's debut novel The Danish Girl, in which Nicole Kidman will portray both Einar and Lili.

Interesting, I've never heard of this person. Was he like the first record male to female transsexual (someone who actually had the operations)?

Yes, Einar's transformation into Lili was the first documented sex-change operation in the world! Here are some photos I found:

Before as Einar:




After as Lili:



Einar was married to Greta Wegener, who happens to be the artist that convinced him to dress as a woman for a portrait. She was a preacher's daughter who was well known for her orgy participation! Check out her work here: http://postcards.ameanet.org/index.php?cmd=categories&catid=9
