In South Carolina, the plaintiff couple adopted a child born with an Intersex condition, from the foster care system. M.C. had a court hearing for termination of his birth mother’s legal rights, but not for gender assignment surgery, the complaint alleges.

Intersexion, the documentary, premiered in 2013. Award-winning filmmaker, Grant Lahood, produced this documentary featuring Mani Bruce Mitchell – New Zealand’s first “out” intersex person.
