Advocates for Informed Choice (AIC) are celebrating the 10th anniversary retrospective of the award-winning documentary, “XXXY”, with a screening of the film and a discussion on what has and has not changed in the treatment of people born with variations of sex anatomy.  Filmmaker Magazine calls “XXXY” “essential filmmaking” as it “concisely and powerfully conveys horror, injustice and tremendous personal fortitude.” This 13-minute documentary features two adults, Howard and Kristi, who were subjected to extensive nonconsensual cosmetic genital surgery as infants and teenagers because they were born with intersex conditions.

Tickets are still available for the event on January 26th at 6 pm in San Francisco, and all the proceeds go to support AIC. Here’s a short film on the AIC’s work.
