In the present paper we will approach the subject of transsexualism through the film The Danish Girl (Hooper, 2015). It tells the story of Einar Wegener, a prominent plastic artist who would later be known as Lili Elbe, the first person to undergo sex reassignment surgery. To analyze the case we will resort to the nodal clinic created by Jacques Lacan in his El Sinthome Seminar, proposing a novel reading through the braid, and in articulation with some contributions of sexuation formulas. Finally, we will frame this issue in the context of the right to gender identity, as a contribution to an ongoing master’s thesis.
