OII Word Chair and Intersex Campaign for Equality (IC4E) founder Hida Viloria was interviewed for Gender Talents , a fantastic web-based project by Colombian artist Carlos Motta that engages movements and discourses for gender self-determination within trans and interest communities.
Watch the 8 1/2 minute video here.
Motta does a FANTASTIC job capturing some of Hida’s best points about the numerous issues that impact intersex people –such as homophobia, gender-variant-phobia, sexism, fear of lesbian sexuality, and the historic sexual disempowerment of all people –and that facilitate medically unnecessary “Normalizaton”surgeries , a.k.a. Intersex Genital Mutilation (IGM). Viloria also talks about some of he/r perspectives as an intact intersex person, how intersex people benefit society, and more! Enjoy.:)
