Join us for a reading group discussion of "Gay Berlin" by Robert Beachy!

For almost a century before the Nazis rose to power, Berlin was the undisputed gay capital of the world. Educators, activists, and medical professionals flocked to this city of firsts the first sex reassignment surgeries, the first Institute for Sexual Science, (arguably) the first openly gay man to explore and educate both themselves and the rest of the world about new and emerging sexual identities. In this fascinating exploration of how the uninhibited urban sexuality of Berlin helped redefine our understanding of sexual orientation, Robert Beachy guides readers through the past events and developments that continue to shape and influence the way we think about sexuality to this day.
