Watch: What it’s like to be intersex

Four intersex people discuss their identities – and what doctors told them they should be.

“My doctors always told me there was nobody else like me”.

This touching video explores four intersex people, who all have different identities – but have all suffered from doctors trying to tell them how their bodies should be. #

Some were even forced to have surgery as children

“Often intersex people get surgeries they don’t want, and transgender people have to fight for surgeries that they do want”.

“They didn’t even come up with an excuse basically, in terms of health related reason, they instead just said it was about appearance.”

“Intersex people don’t need to be fixed, there’s nothing wrong with them”.
