Being born and growing up as an intersex person in today’s society can still be a challenge. However, with love and awareness of everyone, of parents, doctors and institutions, it is possible to grow and live a happy and healthy life.

Not all the stories of intersex people have a happy ending like the one in this video. Watch, get informed and find out how to make the difference.
