Artist, activist & writer Sean Saifa Wall and artist, animator & intersex advocate Emily Quinn both join me on Sex Out Loud to discuss intersex bodies and conditions that result in a difference of sexual development (DSD). We’ll discuss the differences between biological sex and gender, and how variation in human bodies is much more common than one might expect. Wall is the Board President of Advocates for Informed Choice, a legal rights organization dedicated to the bodily integrity of intersex children and infants, while Quinn is the Youth Leadership Coordinator for Inter/Act, a youth group for young people with intersex traits. They will explain the legal and medical landscape that intersex people must currently navigate, particularly how it effects babies and children.
