At Wen Long’s birth, it was impossible to establish if she was a boy or a girl. The child was born intersex. Her parents did not opt for surgery, but left the gender decision to the child himself when he grew up. Now nine-year-old Wen Long isn’t interested in being a boy or a girl, she’s only interested in being herself. Tired of explaining herself, she wishes the whole world understood what intersex was and delivers a candid and playful lesson about acceptance and education in this challenge of the gender binary.
