Intersex Are Real. We Are Real And We Are No More Hiding

A student of Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Chisom has revealed she is an intersex and will no longer live in hiding.

Intersex is a term used for a variety of conditions in which a person is born with a reproductive or sexual anatomy that doesn’t seem to fit the typical definitions of female or male.

Chisom, a DJ, decided to reveal her status after Tee Nsofor revealed her status on twitter few days before.

“Intersex are real. We are real and we are no more hiding,” Chisoma said, noting that their status is as a result of nature and not because they are deformed.

“And anybody that is asking stupid questions, ‘do they have dick, do they have this one? Then, I’ll just advise you to pray to God so God will give you a child that’s an intersex, maybe you’ll now see for yourself how intersex looks like,” she said in a video.


Nigerians react

Following Tee Nwofor’s revelation on twitter, many Nigerians have commended her strength, assuring her she’s perfect irrespective of her difference.

Your openness is so, so powerful. Thank you for sharing this part of your story; you have almost certainly liberated many other people by choosing to do this. We see you, we’re thankful for you❤️❤️
