By Kristina Antoniades (Special Counsel)

On this episode of JOY Law, we discuss legal issues affecting intersex people, including:

  • historic and current legal rights;
  • parental decisions about “special medical procedures” (and what these are);
  • birth certificates and assigning gender at birth;
  • the definition of “intersex”; and
  • state-by-state differences in legal rights relating to intersex people.
