The first film of the year was the Danish Girl starring amongst others Eddie Redmayne and Alicia Vikander. The film is inspired by the lives of Einar and Gerda Wegener Danish artists living in the 1920s. Einar becomes Lili Elbe, who was one of the first people to undertake sex reassignment surgery.
Interesting film, I was not expecting to like it but it made me think about gender issues. It is something I know very little about. In my own area of work – it is something that I understand to be rare – I have only come across one case – and this would be managed by people more specialist than me.
NHS Choices provides a comprehensive page of basic information on gender dysphoria. Fascinating and complex.
