Pidgeon (Chicago, IL) is an intersex activist, educator, and filmmaker. They are a leader in the intersex movement’s fight for bodily autonomy and justice. Their goal is to deconstruct the dangerous myths that lead to violations of intersex people’s human rights, including common, irreversible medical procedures performed without consent to make bodies conform to binary sex stereotypes. Pidgeon has a decade’s worth of experience giving talks and facilitating intersex workshops around the globe.

Pidgeon Pagonis is currently collaborating on a feature-length documentary film about their activism with Shawna Lipton and director Aubree Bernier-Clarke who will both be in attendance at the talk.
