Intersex Writer and Activist

The world’s not just black or white, blond or brunette, male or female.  Intersex people exist, bursting the binary bubble that keeps us humans so separate.

Intersex and Out

I was for <em>Gender Talents</em>, a fantastic web-based project by artist Carlos Motta that engages movements and discourses for gender self-determination within trans and interest communities. Carlos did a FANTASTIC job capturing some of my best points about the numerous issues that impact intersex people —  such as homophobia, gender-variant-phobia, sexism, fear of lesbian sexuality, and the historic sexual disempowerment of all people — and that facilitate our medical “Normalizaton”, ak.a. Intersex Genital Mutilation (IGM). I also talk about some of my perspective as an intact intersex person, how intersex people benefit society, and more. Watch the 8 1/2 minute video here. :)
