Hi, I’m Intersex – Pt 1 #FirstVlog
[Trigger Warning: I talk about experiencing non-consensual genital surgery]
This video gives an intro to my intersex story. It provides an intersex 101 of sorts, and focuses mostly on my intersex variation known as Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome. Each part of this series goes a little more in depth about various aspects of my story. Enjoy the first part off the story here, and if you find it interesting or helpful in anyway, please subscribe and share with your friends and family.

I’m pidgeon and I’m a non-binary intersex person, activist, blogger, filmmaker and youtuber. I grew up believing I was the only person like me–born with sex characteristics such as chromosomes, reproductive organs, and or genitalia not easily categorized as either male or female–but found out that there’s indeed millions of intersex people around the world. In fact, according the UN’s latest statistics, intersex people may be as common as natural born redheads!
I want to live in a world where babies who are born intersex are no longer subjected to non-consensual, medically unnecessary, genital destroying “cosmetic” surgeries. These surgeries are considered by many, including the UN, to be violations of our human rights.
