Intersexion sponsored by ImageOut and the Susan B. Anthony Institute for Gender & Women’s Studies

Cinema Theatre, 957 South Clinton Ave., Rochester, NY 14620

Intersexion attempts to demystify the world of intersex or what used to be broadly referred to as “hermaphroditism.” But instead of simply dwelling on medical terms and treating his subjects as oddities, filmmaker Grant Lahood introduces us to a group of vibrant individuals who are willing to publicly share their loves and lives, their hopes and struggles, their frustrations and joys of being born intersex.Free and open to public.
