Interview with Christine Jorgensen 1966 (or 67)
I'm writing about Christine Jorgensen for a paper topic and I found this interview of her on the Joe Pyne Show.
It's interesting because they discuss homosexuality and transvestitism (in contrast to transsexuality).
It's cool to see what terms were used by the media and how Jorgensen identifies and clarifies.
