Intersex People: What You Should Know and Why You Should Care!
Presented by Dr. Veronica Drantz and intersex spokespersons Alex and Mugsie (1:15-2:45pm)
Who is intersex? What are the types of intersex? Is intersexuality natural? What concerns (sexual, social, medical, and legal) are shared by LGBT people and intersex people? Meet intersex people and hear their stories! Learn why you should care! Questions and discussion will follow presentation.
Veronica Drantz holds a Ph.D. in animal physiology and has taught science to medical professionals most of her life. The more than fifty years of research on the development of core sexuality in mammals, including humans, has been reviewed by Dr. Drantz. She speaks to the public about this research and its societal ramifications.
Alex and Mugsie are brave intersex persons who will tell their stories and answer your questions.
