Biography

Earl Lind was born in 1874 in Connecticut. He was born in a Puritan family.

By 1895 he met other androgynes in New York City, in a society called Cercle Hermaphroditos, whose aim was "to unite for defense against the world's bitter persecution."

He believed that he could 'diagnose a man sexually simply by hearing him sing', and he wanted to be an opera soprano.
