Born Intersex: we are human! | Mx. Anunnaki Ray Marquez | TEDxJacksonville

May 30, 2024
all my life I felt like this world was not mine when I was a child, I even felt like an alien visitor from another world, you might be wondering how can this be, obviously we are all from planet Earth, well my explanation is quite simple. See, as a child I was taught that only typical girls and boys are allowed to exist and that we are all defined by our birth certificates. I was given a clear message that if I did not abide by these rules I would become such an outcast that my mere existence had become too controversial.
