really liked it
Read in January, 1993

Yes, another work I've been pawing over again to use as a reference for my own writing this week. It's just so dang rich in juicy historical detail for the late 19th/early 20th centuries. Lind mentions what I think is the first known "transgender" organization in the U.S., the Cercle Hermaphroditos, founded in 1895 in New York, based on the self-perceived need of self-styled "androgynes" to "unite for defense against the world’s bitter persecution.”
