The headline is factually incorrect! The world's first Transexual (M to F) was a danish painter named Einar Wegner who later used the name Lily Elbe. She transitioned in Berlin in 1930-31. She died there from infection in 1931. Christine Jorgensen's transition was at the Sang Station in Copenhagen with a Dr Hamburger wher he had been doing much work along these lines before she got there.
