06.09 \ On Intersex \ Discussion

Watch “No Box for Me. An Intersex Story” and meet Deborah Abate from the film to discuss the topic of intersexuality.

Deborah, like an estimated 1.7 percent of people, were born Intersex – with sex characteristics that are different from the binary understandings of male or female. Sometimes these differing characteristics may not be apparent at birth, and other variations may not be apparent until puberty. Like many, Deborah was forced into unnecessary medically surgeries to “normalize” her body as a child – before she could understand what was going on.

The film, as well as the discussion, is the reflection on the way intersex people seek to reappropriate their bodies and construct their identities.
