National Geographic, Katie Couric, and World of Wonder Production’s collaborated on a moving new project “Gender Revolution” that premieres on February 6th at 9PM E.T. Highlighting the triumphs, struggles, and journeys of intersex, trans, and gender non-conforming, this documentary will reveal and relate the human condition: that we all want equal rights.
Meet the Brian Douglas:
Brian Douglas is 50 years old. He was born intersex, was operated on as infant and raised as a girl. But for much of his life, he never felt comfortable with that gender assignment. Now he’s living as a man.
Here’s Brian Douglas in his own words: “I wish people knew that gender, for millions, is not as simple as an ‘F’ or ‘M’ on a birth certificate. For millions of people around the globe, gender is NOT ‘cut and dry’ nor is it ‘black and white.’ I wish everyone would stop trying to force someone who is gender diverse to conform… stop trying to fix them. Just let them be in their own uniqueness. They have a right to their own individuality… embrace them.”
