Intersex Writer and Activist



3 minute video compilation of some of my best television & film interviews.


49 second video by the UN Free & Equal Campaign, released in conjunction with the September, 2015 publication of their FANTASTIC Intersex Fact Sheet, which I am honored to say I helped edit.

Note: I’m very happy to say that since this video was shot, a ton of people HAVE come out as intersex, and more are doing so every day. 🙂


4 minute video by the United Nation’s Free & Equal Campaign of the event Sports Comes Out Against Homophobia, held at the UN in New York in honor of Human Rights Day 2013. I spoke, by invitation, on a panel moderated by amazing “out” journalist Thomas Roberts, with “out” sports legends Martina Navratilova and Jason Collins, and my fellow human rights activists Thandeka, aka “Tumi”, Mkhuma of South Africa, and Anastasia Smirnov of Russia.


Video Interview in Gender Talents, a web-based project launched on March 15, 2015, by artist Carlos Motta, that engages movements and discourses for gender self-determination within trans and interest communities.

Topics: homophobia, gender-variant-phobia, sexism, fear of lesbian sexuality, religious sexual disempowerment of all people, Intersex Genital Mutilation (IGM), my perspective as an intact intersex person, how intersex people benefit society, and more.

Note: a little embarrassed about my Gringa accent, & barely letting the host get a word in edgewise, lol, but I felt desperate to get as much information as possible to the parents in the lawsuit. Spoiler alert: happy ending! 🙂
