Intersex issues are to be discussed alongside an award-winning documentary this weekend in Auckland.
The workshop, which is being jointly run by Intersex Trust NZ, the Human Rights Commission and Rainbow Youth, will feature a Q&A session with intersex activist Mani Mitchell. The participatory session features the “Chocolate Fish Award”, which will be awarded to any one who can ask a question that Mani is too embarrassed to answer. (It is reported that no chocolate fish have been harmed so far.)
Following the Q&A is a screening of Intersexion, a documentary about the 1 in 2000 people who are born intersex.
To attend the workshop, you must RSVP by Wednesday. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest.
