Genital Variation: The Myth of Binary

The cover image for the video. To the left are rows and columns of colorful graphics of vulvas. There are two rows with five images at the top and bottom. In the middle in black are the words: "Genital Variation: The myth of the binary." To the far right is a green background with the names, titles, and circle headshots of T. Hunter and Heather Edwards.

This is an accessible, short (about fifty minutes) educational video that covers genital variation, inclusive of trans and intersex variations. Made by Our Bodies Ourselves Today Content Expert Heather Edwards with T. Hunter (a BIPOC intersex nonbinary sex educator) from the Raleigh LGBT Center. There’s also a drawing lesson to teach you to draw variations to match your needs.

“As a pelvic physical therapist, I felt like there was something missing when it came to sexuality and LGBTQIA+ inclusion in the medical field. As a queer nonbinary person decided to do something about it. Not only did I want better images and representation, I wanted fun and engaging art and conversation. No one should have crappy medical experiences because of their gender or genitals. It’s time to do better.”
