The Feminist Moment
Today marks the 150th birthday of German doctor, sexologist Magnus Hirschfeld. As founder of the first homosexual emancipation movement in Germany, Hirschfeld pioneered a new way of conceptualizing gender beyond the heteronormative binary. In 1897, Hirschfeld and several colleagues founded the Scientific Humanitarian Committee, which was the first organization of its kind to address and fight for the decriminalization of homosexual sex, as well as a campaign for the legal and social recognition of lesbian, gay, trans* and inter* people. Hirschfeld created the "Institute of Sexual Research" in 1919. However, following Hitler's rise to power, Nazis plundered and destroyed the institute and its library as part of their propaganda censorship campaign. Shortly thereafter, Hirschfeld fled to Switzerland, where he lived in exile until his death in 1935 — Creator: wellcome. CC-BY 4.0
