XOXY -A Memoir
by Kimberly M. Zieselman (she/her)
Meet Kimberly, a wife and mother, who discovered later in life that she was born intersex. This fueled her to become an international human rights defender and globally recognized activist.
Charting her intersex discovery and her journey to self-acceptance, this book movingly portrays how being intersex impacted Kimberly’s personal and family life, as well as her career. 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 breakdown barriers and misconceptions of intersex people and brings to light the trauma and harmful impact medical intervention continues to have on the intersex community.
