Christian Hamburger, a Danish endocrinologist and specialist in rehabilitative hormonal therapy. On September 24, 1951, surgeons at Gentofte Hospital in Copenhagen performed an orchiectomy on Jorgensen.
In summer stock, she played Madame Rosepettle in the play Oh Dad, Poor Dad, Mamma's Hung You in the Closet and I'm Feelin' So Sad.She returned to the United States in the early 1950s and her transition was the subject of a New York Daily News front-page story.She became an instant celebrity, using the platform to advocate for transgender people and became known for her directness and polished wit.When she appeared on an episode of The Dick Cavett Show, the host asked a question about the status of her romantic life with her wife, Jorgensen walked off the show's set.As she was the only scheduled guest, Cavett spent the rest of that show stating that he had not meant to offend her.

She also worked as an actress and nightclub entertainer and recorded several songs.Jorgensen was the second child of carpenter and contractor George William Jorgensen Sr. She grew up in the Belmont neighborhood of the Bronx, New York City, and later described herself as having been a "frail, blond, introverted little boy who ran from fistfights and rough-and-tumble games". After being discharged from the army, Jorgensen attended Mohawk Valley Community College in Utica, New York the Progressive School of Photography in New Haven, Connecticut and the Manhattan Medical and Dental Assistant School in New York City. Returning to New York after military service and increasingly concerned over (as one obituary later called it) a "lack of male physical development", Jorgensen heard about sex reassignment surgery.Jorgensen intended to go to Sweden, where the only doctors in the world who then performed the surgery were located. During a stopover in Copenhagen to visit relatives, she met Dr. She obtained special permission from the Danish Minister of Justice to undergo a series of operations in that country.In Jorgensen's words, "My second operation, as the previous one, was not such a major work of surgery as it may imply." She then returned to the United States and eventually obtained a vaginoplasty when the procedure became available there.
The vaginoplasty was performed under the direction of Dr. The New York Daily News ran a front-page story on December 1, 1952 under the headline "Ex-GI Becomes Blonde Bombshell", announcing (incorrectly) that Jorgensen had become the recipient of the first "sex change".But it is the other changes that are so much more important.Remember the shy, miserable person who left America?Jorgensen continued her act, performing at Freddy's Supper Club on the Upper East Side of Manhattan until at least 1982, when she performed twice in the Hollywood area: once at the Backlot Theatre, adjacent to the discothèque Studio One, and later at The Frog Pond restaurant.This performance was recorded and has been made available as an album on i Tunes.
