A few weeks ago it was gay conversion, then labiaplasty. Now Hungry Beast is turning its attention to telling the story of two intersex people.
The ABC’s new part-current affairs, part-sketch show speaks to Zoe Brain, a 51-year-old aerospace engineer, who was born male. At the age of 47, her body suddenly changed to female over a three-month period.
The Hungry Beast team follows Brain’s meeting with 23-year-old graphic designer Natalie Kirk, who was born with female anatomy except for underdeveloped ovaries.
“For some people it’s just really hard to imagine anything but male and female. It’s just that some people aren’t either,” Kirk says.
The show looks at the secrecy intersex people are often forced into, despite one in 100 people being intersex.
Hungry Beast airs this Wednesday, March 17 on ABC1 at 9pm.
The show will be available for replay from iView from midnight.
