Intersex: The I in LGBTQI

Same Same But Different

Saturday 10 February, 2.30pm

Sir Paul Reeves Building  Room WG126, AUT City Campus, 2 Governor Fitzroy Place, Auckland City

”Being intersex is not uncommon, it is just unheard of.”

In their award-winning documentary Intersexion, John Keir and Grant Lahood sought to bring the intersex experience to greater awareness. Wellingtonian activist, and out and proud intersex person, Mani Bruce Mitchell narrates the documentary, which features people from around the world who form a proud ‘tribe’.

In this session, Mani is interviewed by Julie Watson, Silver Rainbow Programme Lead. They will discuss the journey of making the documentary and show curated excerpts.

Intersex is an umbrella term that encompasses over 30 different conditions that make one’s gender ambiguous. We believe that one person in every 2000 births is Intersex.

In Intersexion, people discuss living in a society with a binary view of gender, which – at best – has made them all but invisible, and – at worst – has subjected them to damaging ‘corrective’ surgery.
