I didn't really know anything about intersex...
...when I started collaborating with Megan DeFranza on a documentary about this invisible community which represents just under 2% of the population.
25 interviews later (averaging about an hour each) with intersex individuals, doctors, activists, and religious leaders, I have become a passionate advocate for this community, and convince that shining a light on their mistreatment at the hands of the larger society (mostly unwittingly) can give us all a better understanding of a myriad of issues, and the ability to have more informed discussions with each other.
In this video, a fantastic physician talks about a moment when her awareness of the moment -- and an impulse of restraint -- made all the difference. It is a cool story.
