Ancient Archive – Hirschfeld Library Files // Through Knowledge to Justice! – Dr Magnus Hirschfeld

Dr Magnus Hirschfeld is my gay dead Godmother and y'all can't tell me any different. Hirschfeld was a pioneer of understanding human sexuality and a huge advocate for LGBTQI+ rights in a time when it could have bought him an early grave. Dr Hirschfeld was a trailblazer, a persister, a rebel and a pioneer and that is why he is the first male figure I’ve chosen to cover in an Ancient Archive post.
