Pidgeon--recently recognized by the White House as an LGBT Champion of Change--is an intersex person and activist fighting for their community’s human rights and liberation. For over 10 years, they’ve educated audiences about the intersex movement for bodily autonomy and justice via writing, speaking, keynotes, panels, art, workshops and screenings of their documentary, The Son I Never Had. Pidgeon aims to help audiences understand and deconstruct dangerous myths that continually lead to intersex people’s human rights being violated by the medical industrial complex as it enforces society’s unflinching sex and gender norms. Pidgeon hopes to contribute to the creation of a world that is not only safer for intersex kids and adults, but everyone who doesn’t fit within our current austere gender binary.

“I loved Pidgeon’s presentation. They are authentic, relatable and engaging. Getting a room filled with 11th and 12th graders is no easy feat, but Pidgeon pulled it off with ease. I highly recommend Pidgeon to anyone looking to learn about being intersex, fitting-in and/or identity in general.”

“Pidgeon gave an engaging presentation for part of Portland State University’s Pride Month. We really enjoyed that Pidgeon discussed intersex topics in really thoughtful and dynamic ways, especially through showing their unique and powerful documentary.”
– Grace Piper, student organizer, Portland State University, May 2016
“Pidgeon gave the keynote address at our annual Lavender Graduation and Stonewall Awards, an event honoring LGBTQA students. The keynote was a beautiful blend of Pidgeon’s lived experience with injustice as an intersex person and the importance of finding solidarity in a community of resistance.”
