Before Caitlyn Jenner, there was Christine Jorgensen.
Who was the first person to become widely known in the United States for having sex reassignment surgery. Jorgensen grew up in the Bronx, New York City. Shortly after graduating from high school in 1945, she was drafted into the U.S. Army for World War II. After her service she attended several schools, worked, and around this time heard about transitioning surgery. She traveled to Europe and in Copenhagen, Denmark, obtained special permission to undergo a series of operations starting in 1951.
She returned to the United States in the early 1950s and her transformation was the subject of a New York Daily News front page story. She became an instant celebrity, using the platform to advocate for transgender people and became known for her directness and polished wit. She also worked as an actress and nightclub entertainer and recorded several songs.
So, I thought since this group will be OFFICIALLY debuting soon, I would make a post to just get some of you familiarized with them. Here’s a nice little masterpost I will continue to update as more info and videos are put out.

“After a worldwide search we found in Elodie the perfect actress to embody both Elektra’s impressive and deadly physicality as well as her psychological complexity. Paired with Charlie as Matt Murdock, the two will bring one of the most beloved and tumultuous comic book relationships to life with all the accompanying sparks and spectacular action sequences the show is known for.” - Jeph Loeb (x)
