Emily Quinn is a ballsy intersex artist and animator who used to work at Cartoon Network before coming out as intersex on MTV in 2014. And her whole world changed! Now, she’s an intersex activist, using storytelling and humor to create a more welcoming world for people who don’t fit in a box. In this session Emily will share her experiences as an intersex content creator and communications manager for interACT: Advocates for Intersex Youth. She’ll talk about creating television’s first main intersex character, creating viral intersex videos, and what it’s like as she continues to educate the world about what it’s like to live outside the binary.
