who and what?

Odd little hic up with this article

When Don Horn of Triangle Productions went about putting together a world premiere about the first recognized fully transgender person in the United States, people asked him about the individual, guessing that it was 1970s tennis player Renee Richards.

“No, this person came way before Renee Richards,” Horn says. “Nobody knows about this person.”

I don’t know a damned thing about 1970s tennis player Renee Richards (though the name is vaguely familiar.)  I do know  Christine Jorgensen.

It is because tennis is alien to me, but I would know the focal point between Richard Nixon and Ed Wood.

My cultural antenna points are apparently completely out of whack.
