I have been living in the Middle East for the past two years. We have been working on a film around the world on intersex. The web site is bornbetween.com. I have been reading some of the stories here and for those in countries that suppress human dignity, please DON'T GIVE UP!

Right now we are trying to raise funds for a documentary film. But if you are intersex and living in the Middle East or a country that suppresses your natural biological body you were born with, please email us your story at info@bornbetween.com We want to hear from voices in countries where we do not hear from because of religious or cultural suppression.

The link to the film funding campaign is:
