What would you do if you found out a secret that had been hidden from you since birth? What if the secret is about you and your own body?
This is the reality for many intersex people, and the subjects in this riveting documentary are speaking out against the traditions of sensationalism, silence, secrecy and shame. River Gallo (Ponyboi, MGFF19), Alicia Roth Weigel, and Sean Saifa Wall celebrate their authentic selves as they rally to change legislation for consensual treatment, while existing as confident, empowered intersex people in the public eye. Directed by Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Julie Cohen (RGB), Every Body should be required viewing for those new to intersex concepts – and the subjects’ energy and confidence will buoy those already fighting for change.
