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 and I have now presented over twelve times.  This is my life work now and passion to help children born like me.   In Jacksonville, Florida, I have talked to the City Council, the Human Right’s Commissioner, as well as speaking at the Clay County School board meeting.   I have educated our church, people in private in their homes, as well as many schools and universities.

What is Intersex?

According to the Free & Equal 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 natural bodily 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 1.9% 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.  My New Year Resolution for 2017: I promise to be your voice and Why I feel INTERSEX should be added to the LGBTQ rainbow

Why I Saved My life

Below is an audio clip, from the PFLAG National Conference October 2017,  where I share how I did not commit suicide, and how Buck Angel a famous transexual man helped me decide to live instead of ending my life.  Buck Angel encouraged me to own my life purpose when I did not see it without him.  I include his response to my suicide note, back in October 2014:

“Hi Ant, the world will miss you so please don’t go….Thank you for this email. Life can be so damn hard at times. But know this. I survived and you can too. It is not easy I know this. Sometimes it feels like it’s easy just to die. But it is not. You have a message that is so important for everyone in this word. Help me to help make change by sticking around and you will see how important you are to me and the world. You are loved, my friend. With gratitude, Buck”

Testimonials 

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.
