Born Julia and Julius

From the Open Society Foundations, this video tells the story of an activist in Uganda who describes what it was like to grow up as an intersex person in that country, including the complexity and secrecy that was involved in hiding the child's identity. This activist has been working to end the stigma and harassment the intersex community faces, which has involved sharing the experience in front of a live audience on national TV. Julius now works to educate and comfort people about intersex issues across 50 districts in Uganda in order to fight stigma and to ensure all intersex people have the chance to live safe and happy lives.
