Stories of Intersex and Faith


Five intersex people come out of the shadows to shine light on a medical scandal harming children for decades. 
Why are thousands of needless surgeries performed in the United States each year even though the United Nations calls them “torture”? Our anxieties about sex and gender, often rooted in religion, have lead us to hide, shame, and harm healthy intersex children. 
Yet these remarkable stories reveal how some intersex people find healing and hope in their religious faith. They insist, “It’s society that needs to be healed, not us".
