Zucker School of Medicine presents The Voices of a Hidden Community

Join us for a special dramatic presentation of The Voices of a Hidden Community, featuring Emily Quinn, to hear personal narratives from intersex individuals who cry out for health care providers who will listen and learn how to properly treat the medical and psychological needs of this community.

Emily Quinn is an artist/animator, writer, blogger, intersex activist, and international speaker on the topic of what it means to be intersex. Ms. Quinn strives to create a more welcoming world for the almost 2% of people who biologically do not fit in the traditional male or female boxes. (Yes, intersex is that common, but they are taught to live in secrecy, and thus, shame.) She has spoken at numerous medical venues, including the American Academy of Pediatrics, North American Gynecology Society, Society for Pediatric Urology, and a number of medical schools, including Brown, UCLA, UCSF, and USC.

 

Date: February 19, 2019
