A new episode of the Making Gay History podcast (previously) covers the life and work of Magnus Hirschfeld, a pioneering researcher and gay rights activist who founded the Scientific-Humanitarian Committee in 1897, and whose Institute for Sex Research was destroyed by the Nazis in 1933. The episode is accompanied by a full transcript, along with photos and links to resources and related stories. Among these is an account of the final years of Hirschfeld's lover, Li Shiu Tong, in Vancouver, B.C.—and how, in 1993, a Vancouver man discovered Hirschfeld's death mask, papers, and other artifacts in a garbage bin.
