The Nature of Intersex
thousands of children around the world
are biologically born intersex.
Intersex is a variation
in the biological development of a child
while the child is still in the womb.
the child is born with a biological sex variation
of both the male and female physiology.
When intersex children are born,
they are sometimes ‘surgically reassigned’
by the doctors and physicians.
Intersex babies eventually become young children,
and then adolescents and then adults.
Intersex does not mean gay,
or homosexual, or transgender,
Growing up and living as an intersex person
is sometimes difficult, challenging
and in some cases, cruel or traumatic.
You can read a few personal,
and very often heartbreaking stories,
in our new Personal Journal pages.
Our goal as filmmakers,
is to produce a feature length documentary film
to inform and educate,
and to restore the human dignity and respect
which all intersex persons deserve.
We need your help!
We continue to seek funding and donations
to produce the full length documentary film
on the Nature of Intersex.
Our short 8 minute promotional film is a good introduction on the topic.
We recorded this interview with Dr. Elof Axel Carlson,
a retired biologist, geneticist and recent author
of a detailed scientific and technical study
on the biology and genetics of intersex.
The interview is a brief insight into the science and the social implications.
“Nothing and no one is perfect.
It just takes a good eye to find those hidden imperfections.”
