“It’s society that needs to be healed, not us.”

Stories of Intersex and Faith has created transformational experiences for individual viewers, faith communities, and physicians. Five powerful stories, gently and beautifully told, create empathy for those born different from the majority, correct inaccurate understandings of human sex differences, and dissolve anxieties which plague conversations about sex and gender. Stories of Intersex and Faith will help viewers enter into more constructive conversations on one of the most divisive issues facing communities of faith and American society at large. More than this, it will save future children from what the United Nations has called “torture” and heal some of the deepest anxieties we all carry about ourselves.”

Five intersex people come out of the shadows to shine light on a medical scandal harming children for decades.

Why are thousands of needless surgeries performed in the United States each year even though the United Nations calls them “torture”? Our anxieties about sex and gender, often rooted in religion, have led us to hide, shame, and harm healthy intersex children.

Yet these remarkable stories reveal how some intersex people find healing and hope in their religious faith. They insist, “It’s society that needs to be healed, not us.”
