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.
