Denmark’s History: the World’s First Same Sex Civil Union

One of the world’s first LGBTQ* associations was founded in Copenhagen in 1948, the world’s first male to female sex reassignment surgery was performed on a Dane in 1930, and the world’s first gay marriage took place in Copenhagen in 1989. As you can see, Denmark is an extremely safe place for the LGBTQ* community, and holds a special place in history.
