Directed by RBG's Julie Cohen, the documentary Every Body champions the intersex community while exploring historical and current efforts to suppress people who are born with a combination of male and female biological traits. The documentary examines how the intersex community is slowing uniting after years of suppression to fight for its rights. The documentary focuses on three members of the intersex community: activist Sean Saifa Wall, filmmaker River Gallo, and Austin-based writer and activist Alicia Roth Weigel. Assigned female at birth, Weigel had male internal sex organs surgically removed as a minor. identifying as both she/they, Weigel came out in 2017 as intersex to protest the anti-trans bathroom bill pushed by Texas Republicans. The documentary delves into Weigel's childhood, the consequences of coming out as intersex, and her ongoing campaign to ban harmful, non-consensual medically unnecessary surgery on intersex minors on a federal level.
