“1882 Denmark. It all began like a game. Although I was against it from the beginning, I would have done anything for my beloved Gerda and that‘s what I did. No one knew what was about to happen.
That was the greatest experience of my life.  I submerged myself in a world I did not know. At that moment I stopped being the man I thought I was. The sensation of plenitude cannot be explained with words. I did not know that that was the beginning of the most important event of my life. I gambled everything without worrying about the price that had to be paid. That moment would change everything forever.”
Lili Elbe, born in Denmark at the end of the 19th century, was one of the first persons to undergo sex reassignment surgery. A successful painter, she died in 1931, three months after a uterus transplant.
