Normalizing Intersex

This issue of VOICES presents "Normalizing Intersex". These authors offer an honest look into the lives of people diagnosed as intersex by allowing them to tell their own stories. These stories are shared with the hope that they will influence medical discourse and training about the diagnosis of intersex and the real people who live with it.

"I was happy to tell my story, to share the truth and help bring long buried intersex narratives into the light..." Karen Walsh, Voices Contributor
