An interesting read isThe Danish Girl, by David Ebershoff. Inspired by a true story, it is the tender portrayal of the remarkable Lili Elbe, a pioneer in transgender history. It is set against the glitz and glamour of the 1920’s and takes place in Copenhagan, Paris and Dresden. The book explores the boundaries of gender, love and marriage and the journey to become oneself. The movie is currently showing in downtown Calgary.
