Intersex and Out

Can’t say how thrilled I am that my May, 2014 essay “What’s in a Name: Intersex and Identity” (originally published here for my blog, Intersex and Out), will be published by Oxford University Press this December in the college textbook, QUEER: A Reader for Writers, by Jason Schneiderman.
