Transition; The Christine Jorgensen Collection
In honor of Transgender Day of Remembrance, Transformation Theatre is producing an online reading of Transition; The Christine Jorgensen Collection by Donald Steven Olson.
TRANSITION – The Christine Jorgensen Collection examines the lives of three extraordinary transgender women and a gay man. Following her sex-change operation in Denmark in 1952, Christine Jorgensen became a worldwide celebrity and the first openly transsexual entertainer and public figure. Her story gave hope to thousands of other transsexual, transgender and gay people in a repressive era when sex and gender roles were strictly defined and medically enforced.
