This week, surgeon/YA author I. W. Gregorio and intersex advocate Emily Quinn visited us at UC Davis Health System to shed some light on the contentious relationship between intersex people and the institution of medicine. Gregorio and Quinn presented at the Department of Urology Grand Rounds on the intersection of intersex and medicine.
Now that you know some of the basics about Intersex Awareness Day, here are some resources to get you up to speed!
A great start is the Buzzfeed video below, featuring Emily and a number of other awesome advocates:
