Saïd, intersex Moroccan, shares his story

By on .

OII Moroccan affiliate member Saïd tells the story of what it is to be intersex living in that country. Intersex is rarely spoken of in the Middle East, so Saïd is incredibly courageous to do so.

It should be noted that the prevalence of intersex throughout the Middle East is believed to be higher that the 1% to 4% found in most other countries, with hospital administrators in Saudi Arabia, for example, citing remarkably high numbers of intersex people attending their institutions for treatment.
