(July 1, 2018) On the two previous editions of OutCasting, we explored intersex with two professors who are authorities on the phenomenon. Both of them are intersex themselves and one is also transgender. This month, we continue the exploration by talking with an intersex youth who was assigned female at birth and identifies as transgender.
Among other things, he was born with a condition that caused his body to produce testosterone as well as estrogen, and the warring hormones had effects on his development of secondary sex characteristics. Perhaps most interestingly, he was not subjected to involuntary medical interventions and has had the autonomy to experience his intersex condition on his own terms. Join us as OutCaster Andrea talks with him.
