The Incredibly True Adventures of Gerda Wegener and Lili Elbe.

The true story (NSFW) of turn-of-the-century lesbian romance, erotic Deco illustrations rife with harlequins and crinolines, the world’s first male-to-female sex reassignment surgery, and the 1950s pulp novel that brought it all to light. A Decree by the King of Denmark was required to Free Danish Artist from the wife he had married before his sex was reversed. How the divorce was reported in 1933.
Some more of Gerda's work.
