A reading, Q&A and book signing with Kimberly Zieselman.

Kimberly Zieselman is an intersex woman, lawyer and Executive Director of interACT - one of the world's largest intersex organizations and advocacy groups. We are excited to have her for an evening of reading and conversation about her new memoir, XOXY.

Kimberly's provocative and life-affirming memoir charts her journey from discovering she is intersex through to self-acceptance and becoming an international human rights defender, and the impact this has had on her personal and family life. From uncovering a secret that was intentionally kept from her, to coming out to her family and friends and fighting for intersex rights, her candid and empowering story helps break down barriers and misconceptions about intersex people and brings to light the trauma and harmful impact medical intervention continues to have on the intersex community.

Written from a non-queer perspective and filled with much-needed, straightforward information and advice about what it means to be intersex, this is a vital and timely resource for intersex people and their families, as well as the general reader. We look forward hosting Kimberly and hearing her important story!
