I am an Intersex Survivor:

I emancipated my true gender in 2014, after being assigned the wrong gender at birth.  Here is my autobiography.   I started giving education talks in 2015.   This is my life work and passion to help children born like me.

What is Intersex?

According to the United Nations’ Intersex Fact Sheet: Intersex people are born with sex characteristics that do not fit typical binary notions of male or female bodies. Intersex is an umbrella term used to describe a wide range of intersex natural bodily variations, hormonal variations, and chromosomal variations. In some cases, intersex traits are visible at birth while in others, they are not apparent until puberty or may not be physically apparent at all.  Even though 1.7% of the population is born intersex, about the same number of people born with red hair, the term intersex is not well understood.  Us intersex people have been erased in many ways from the view of society.  This is why education is crucial so that we can change society and make this world a safer place for all of us.

Review of Intersex Presentation to PFLAG Rockford group on March 5, 2018
Mx. Anunnaki’s engaging video-conference intersex presentation took us on an incredible journey to begin to understand how we need to be more inclusive of the “I” in LGBTQIA. Mx. Anunnaki’s personal passions and investment on this topic shined as he used his life experiences to enlighten and inform us. Although a video-conference call is not always personable, that wasn’t an issue since he captivated us by offering his wisdom, authentic self and powerful vulnerability during the presentation.
Mx. Anunnaki’s hour-long presentation was full of valuable information. Using statistics, he relayed that there are just as many intersex individuals as there are redheads! He detailed the many variations in characteristics that make a person intersex, from physical traits to chromosome patterns. He provided that these are separate from sexual orientation and gender identity so we could understand that there’s different factors involved and each person is unique. After defining intersex, we were informed of the medical treatments (or lack thereof) and astonishing discriminations that intersex people experience.
One of my favorite parts of Mx. Anunnaki’s presentation was when he dove into the history of how intersex persons have been treated. I enjoyed learning how previous cultures have celebrated intersexed individuals, like the Egyptians. I also loved how he included beautiful images, like the 16th-century painting titled “The Bearded Woman” to get us to understand the historical aspect of intersex individuals. The research Mx. Anunnaki performed for this presentation is impressive!
Our group appreciated how real and honest Mx. Anunnaki made his presentation. Getting a glimpse into Mx. Anunnaki’s life, from his tragic past experiences and ill-treatment to his current loving family life, brought us closer to understanding him and his message. His perseverance and dedication to educate people on this topic is inspiring. He brings so much hope and uplifting messages for the changes that need to happen for the intersex community.
We deeply appreciate Mx. Anunnaki’s video-conference presentation and the fact sheet handout he provided (we can add it to our group’s resources). After attending this presentation, I know PFLAG Rockford sees the world differently. We are empowered with information and awareness on intersex individuals so we can be more inclusive and make changes within our community.

At a PFLAG meeting, Mx. Annunaki Ray gave a presentation, “Born Intersex in the USA: My Story and the Value of Inclusion”, it was a heartfelt, educational and impactful experience for me.  He addressed the issues around Intersex, the good, the bad, and the ugly with love and care. He spoke with clarity, humor, and respect. At one point I became emotional and cried.  His message of responsibly including the “I” in the LGBTQ letters prompted PFLAG of Jacksonville to make him Director of Intersex/Gender Education. Mx. Annunaki Ray’s honesty while sharing his experience was a powerful influence in motivating me to become more involved in promoting Intersex Awareness.

I have had the privilege to hear Mx. Annunaki Ray give two presentations, “Listen with Care: Building Bridges of Understanding”, as well as a follow up small group presentation during an adult educational class. His talks brought about a broad understanding of what it means to be born intersex. He led with his heart and spoke from a reality few of us can even imagine about being born intersex. Hearing his personal story as well as the detailed education has brought about my own personal growth and a shared advocacy. Mx. Annunaki Ray’s pure love and desire for truth make for a powerfully motivating speaker whose words will continue challenge and influence Intersex awareness and changes for years to come. Every listening ear is sure to be influenced.

Anunnaki is one of the most passionate, informed, and motivational speakers I have ever met. His ability to speak his truth and educate at the same time will leave you motivated to take action. He is especially skilled at helping the audience feel connected and unafraid to ask questions. His gentle and assertive way of connecting with his audience helps deliver his powerful message of hope. If you are lucky enough to hear him speak, your life will be changed.
