Our Associate Director Dana Zzyym shares their incredible journey toward wholeness as a non-binary intersex person and activist on WNYC Studio’s Radiolab. Radiolab has won Peabody Awards, a National Academies Communication Award “for their investigative use of radio to make science accessible to broad audiences.”
Zzyym reveals how harmful the nonconsensual treatments they received as an intersex child were, and how they came to embrace themselves a queer nonbinary intersex herm despite these harmful experiences. They also discuss their groundbreaking non-binary U.S. passport lawsuit, which is ongoing and has sparked three states (Oregon, California, Washington) and Washington D.C. to offer non-binary gender options to residents since it was filed on October 26th, Intersex Awareness Day, 2015.
