The novel "Reflexer" (Reflections) is the first novel in Swedish literature with a transgender person as the main character. "Reflexer" is a coming-out-novel before the genre was invented and deals with both sexual and gender identities in the early 20th century Sweden. "Reflexer" can thematically be linked to our contemporary LGBTQ literature.
