"Different From the Others" a 1919 German pro-gay rights film. The film protests the German law forbidding homosexuality at the time. It follows the tender love story between a violinist and his student, along with pro-gay speeches by a renowned sexologist. Mostly destroyed by Nazis, the film survives as a fragment.
