Who I Am Not

In a world unaware of the existence of intersex individuals, Dimakatso survived genital mutilation as a child, while Sharon, a beauty queen, uncovered her hidden male genetics at the age of 21. As they navigate together the complexities of their identities and challenge deep-rooted societal taboos, their intertwined stories reveal the resilience and beauty of intersex lives hidden in plain sight.
