Intersex Bodies and the Society that Shapes Them

Morgan Carpenter is president of Organisation Intersex International (OII) Australia, a national institution. He wrote OII Australia’s submissions to Senate Inquiries on anti-discrimination legislation, and on the involuntary or coerced sterilisation of intersex people in Australia. In this lunchtime talk, he’ll introduce what intersex is, talk about its relevance to LGBT alliances, and cover key health, cultural and religious issues as they relate to intersex – and their mental health impact.

BYO lunch. Ideas provided.

Middlesex: Queer Week

We’ve come a long way since the bad old days when any sexuality that wasn’t heterosexual, monogamous and sealed by marriage was kept behind the bedroom door and between the sheets (or up against the wall). In a week of open discussion and joyous celebration, we’re exploring sexuality and identity in all their alternative forms.

Who?
