In this edition of the BBC’s podcast “The Essay,” therapist Sarah Graham tells a powerful and incredibly personal story, of finding out at the age of twenty-five that she is an intersex woman who has XY chromosomes. Graham is an excellent speaker, and her Letter to My Body is an eloquent but scathing discussion about the harm that adhering to a medical and social gender binary can cause. Her piece is only 15 minutes long and definitely worth listening to.
