@ghost_bird still gutted the queer walking tour of Berlin we went on left out Hirschfeld's clinic. Instead the cis gay guy walked us through general non-queer Berlin history and showed us all a picture of Twisted Sister he'd printed off to explain gender nonconformity 🤨

@godtierchaoticgay @ghost_bird honestly the problem with walking tours of this city is that many of the cool places you'd actually want to see are uncomfortable having tourists nearby (for understandable reasons)
