In this guided tour we'll dive together into the history of sexual science and sex life in Berlin, from Dr. Magnus Hirschfeld's institute of sexual science, through past-Berlin's infamous Eldorado to present-day Berlin's Kit Kat Club. We'll start in the late 19th Century and go through the roaring twenties and the downfall of sexual freedom at the hand of the Nazis. We'll cover the resurrection after the war in a divided Berlin, as well as the current state today.

Things we'll explore include:

Dr Magnus Hirschfeld's story – one of the world's first sexual scientists;

the foundation of the world's first gay rights organization;

Berlin's sex and night life in the 20s;

world famous Eldorado clubs, that even saw high Nazi officials as visitors;

the home of British-American writer Christopher Isherwood, whose Berlin stories led to a world famous musical;

the former location of sexologist Dr. Hirschfeld's institute of sexual science;

the eradication of sexual freedom by Nazi Germany and its resurrection after WWII;

the emergence of the AIDS epidemic and how differently West and East Germany/Berlin dealt with it;

the districts of Nollendorfplatz and Kottbusser Tor, some of the world's biggest LGBTQ centers;

and the history of current clubs of sexual liberty, including the Kit Kat Club, Berghain, and Lab.oratory.

About your guide:
I am a sociologist and I focussed my studies on gender, queer theory, social justice, and sexualities. Currently I am studying sexual sciences and I run this blog on the sociology and social psychology of sexualities and societies. I have been working and volunteering for several sexual health and human rights NGOs, including Germany's national HIV/AIDS healthcare organization. I have been living in Berlin since 2014 and I have been fascinated by sex since more than 10 years – so with me you'll surely get the facts about sex you never knew before.
This tour is kindly supported by the Federal Foundation Magnus Hirschfeld (Bundesstiftung Magnus Hirschfeld) in light of the 150th birthday of Magnus Hirschfeld.
