A bit of trans and intersex history from August 6, 1936.

I’ve edited the clippings together so they’re easier to read, without ads or other articles cluttering up the page. It’s so cool to read about a female-identified-at-birth intersexed individual coming to identify more as a male and being treated with a measure of respect and personal privacy in a public newspaper a little over 76 years ago. And he’s happy. And married. And belongs to a community who would defend him.

Seriously, this article blows my mind because it so easily could have gone in a more tabloidish direction, and for the most part, it doesn’t.
