About this video
Talking about gender topics has never been easy. It is an intricate issue per se as it implies several biological and cultural aspects and it is often surrounded by ideological preconceptions. Talking about intersex is even more challenging as on top of the mentioned difficulties, the word itself - let alone its challenging dynamics - is virtually unknown by the vast majority of the public. Buzzfeed LGBT and ILGA asked us to come up with a script that was delicate, poetic and clear enough. We wanted to tell the inspiring story of a family that everybody could identify with and we wanted to convey a vivid feeling. It came natural to opt for traditional animation techniques as they would have allowed us to give a more authentic life to the characters and ensure a human touch behind the production. The heartfelt voice you here in the video is form Pidgeon Pagonis, artist and leading intersex activist from the States.
