Wednesday March 27: Intersexion
(Documentary | 2012 | 68 minutes)
The first question any new parent asks… “Is it a boy or a girl?” What if it is neither? 1 in 2,000 babies is born with genitalia so ambiguous that the doctors cannot easily answer this question. In this groundbreaking documentary, intersex individuals reveal the secrets of their unconventional lives – and how they have navigated their way through this strictly male/female world, when they fit somewhere in between. “Intersexion” looks beyond the shame and secrecy that defines many intersex births, and explores how intersex people “with their very different bodies” navigate their way through childhood, adolescence, relationships and adulthood, when they don’t fit the binary model of a solely male and female world.
This screening will be followed by a discussion and Q and A with Emi Koyama, Director of Intersex Initiative.
