XXY
Unknown to most, some babies are born with a condition known as genital ambiguity. XXY is the story of the brutal and transforming moment when a teenager comes to term with her identity.
Nothing is worst than being afraid of one´s own body, a boy who underwent a normalisation once told me. He grew up with the scars of surgery on his body. In that castration, the fear of genital ambiguity became the metaphor for all the amputations spawned by fear of Difference.
