21 January, 19:00
The first question any new parent asks… “Is it a boy or a girl?”
What if it’s neither? 1 in 2,000 babies is born with genitalia so ambiguous that the doctors cannot easily answer this question.
Intersexion sets out to de-mystify intersex, looking beyond the shame and secrecy that defines many intersex births. With interviews of intersex people in America, Ireland, Germany, South Africa and Australia, the film explores how these individuals navigate their way through childhood, adolescence, relationships and adulthood, when they don’t fit the binary model of a solely male and female world.
The film will be followed by a Q&A with guest speakers:
The film is in English and has a running time of 68 minutes
