Anders als die Andern is a German silent film released in 1919. It is the very first film to show homosexuality in a sympathetic light. It portrays the suffering that gays endured during the time in Germany when homosexuality was outlawed. It is notable for including photos of real lesbians, transgender men and women, and gay men from that time period, as well as showing real gay couples dancing in a bar scene. Nazis attempted to destroy all copies of the film in the 1930s, so much of it is lost, but what remains can be viewed online, with the plot summarized.
