Intersexion - the documentary

Here is the documentary by GRANT LAHOOD and MANI BRUCE MITCHELL  Intersexion released in 2012

which explores “…beyond the shame and secrecy that defines many intersex births, and explores how intersex people “with their very different bodies” navigate their way through childhood, adolescence, relationships and adulthood, when they don’t fit the binary model of a solely male and female world.”
