German manager, publisher, and author, who published various gay and lesbian magazines, books and other printed works.

Radszuweit moved to Berlin in 1901 and opened a women's clothes shop. In 1923, Radszuweit, who was gay, founded the organisation Bund für Menschenrecht E.V. (BfM), which worked for the rights of gay people and for the deletion of Paragraph 175. He started his own publishing company and published the monthly magazine Zeitschrift für Menschenrecht from 1923 to 1933. The company also published several LGBT books and homoerotic graphics.

The company also produced the first gramophone record with homosexual themes, including "Bubi laß uns Freunde sein" by Bruno Balz and Erwin Neuber. Other magazines published include Insel, Magazin der Einsamen (1926–1931), and Das dritte Geschlecht (four editions: 1930/1931). He also started the lesbian magazine Die Freundin, Wochenschrift für ideale Frauenfreundschaft.

Radszuweit wrote the novels Männer zu verkaufen, Ledige Frauen, Die Symphonie des Eros and Paul Tritzkis Lebensweg. In 1927, he produced a flyer for the members of the Reichstag advocating reform of § 175.

On 15 March 1932, Radszuweit died in Berlin of a heart attack.
