Happy Herm New Year’s to All!

Happy Herm New Year’s to All!

Feeling so grateful for the support I’ve gotten with my memoir Born Both this past year! From all the folk at my publisher Hachette Book Groups, to those who read it and/or reviewed it, to my friends and chosen family, and all the beautiful people that just support intersex people, I want to say thank you from the bottom of my big sensitive herm heart!

Also proud of the The Intersex Campaign for Equality (@oiiusa)–the org I founded–and grateful for the achievements we made this past year, to the allies who helped us, and to all the amazing activists doing great things all year.

Here’s wishing you all the happiest, most beautifully transformative New Year possible! <3
