The Danish Girl – The Story of Lili Elbe – The Gender Speaker

The current scheduled release date for the Danish Girl in the UK is January 1st 2016 – although I understand that the release date for the USA is earlier in November 2015.  I definitely will be looking forward to seeing the film and especially to seeing the public reaction. If as predicted the film picks up a raft of Oscar, Emmy and BAFTA nominations then perhaps 2016 will be the tipping point for trans people and the breaking down of the last frontier for civil rights.

In the meantime do watch this space as I will be posting a full article about the life of Lili Elbe which is a far more gritty story than the somewhat sanitised and romanticised version presented in the Danish Girl.
