AN INTERSEX STORY

Dionne Freitas was born with an uncommon genetic condition, in which a male assigned person has one more X chromosome. In medical terms, an intersex person. Because of that, in the youth, she did not grow a beard, but breasts. Besides all the emotional confusion, she suffered verbal and physical violence on the streets during that time. Now, 28 years old, she is one of the main activists of the population she represents. The work was published in Marie Claire Magazine, in september, 2018.
