American transsexual who said "nature made a mistake." Hidden desires throughout the confusing teen years, a stint in the army and two years training as a medical assistant preceded young George's decision. Feeling feminine, wanting to dress and act like a woman, he finally, in 1950, went to Denmark to start the "change." After two years, 2,000 injections and three operations, Jorgensen returned to New York - as Christine. She is legally considered female.

She started a night club act, played dinner theater, lectured and published an autobiography. Answering many letters, she avowed that she never regretted her decision; however to people unhappy about their gender, she advised psychiatric and medical help before heading into surgery.

Though she took out a marriage license twice, she never did carry through on marriage.

Jorgensen died of cancer 5/04/1989 16:00 San Clemente, CA.
