Transsexual
    (May 30, 1926-May 3, 1989)
    Birth Name is George William Jorgensen, Jr.
    20th century’s most famous male-to-female transsexual
    Nicknamed ‘The Convertible Blonde’
    She was a ‘he’ until his 26th birthday.
    She suffered from Gender Identity Disorder. Gee, who knew?
    She was frail and effeminate as a boy.
    She preferred to play with dolls when she was a boy.
    She smoked.
    She had breast implants.
    She was uncomfortable around homosexuals.
    She is mistakenly considered to be the first successful male-to-female transsexual. This is incorrect; the first successful surgery was done in the 1920’s on Lili Elbe of Denmark.
    One comedian quipped: ‘Christine Jorgenson is the first man to go abroad and come back a broad’ (abroad/a ‘broad’ – get it?).
    She tried to be discreet about the surgery, but the international press got word of it and all hell broke loose.
    She started a nightclub act to cash in on her notoriety.
    She was the first widely publicized transsexual in history.
    The media hype surrounding her surgery allowed Jorgensen and medical professionals to teach the larger public about the differences between homosexuals, transvestites, and transsexuals.
    She was banned from performing in several US nightclubs because of her ‘perversion.’
    She was quite attractive as a woman.
    She offered to pose nude for ‘Playboy’ magazine (they refused).
    Instead of disowning her, her family loved and supported her before and after her surgery.
    She handled her notoriety with class and dignity.
