Beyond Boxes: The Intersex Case for Intersectionality

Beyond Boxes: The Intersex Case for Intersectionality
Recording: Beyond Boxes: The Intersex Case for Intersectionality, Mar 11, 2018


Gender is fluid and sexuality is a spectrum, but the false binary of biological sex remains. While 150 million Intersex individuals worldwide stand as evidence to the contrary, they are often "normalized" in their youth by un-consented surgeries and stigmatized into silence thereafter. Whether by "bathroom bills" or medically-condoned genital mutilation, humans will continue to be forced into boxes that don't exist until the Intersex movement has its moment. Gender equity activist Alicia Weigel shares her own experience as an Intersex individual and a call-to-action for more intersectional advocacy within the LGBTQIA+ community.
