Nine-year-old Wen Long was born intersex. She isn't interested in being a boy or a girl, she's only interested in being herself. Tired of explaining herself, she wishes the whole world understood what intersex was and delivers a powerfully candid and playful lesson about acceptance and education in this challenge of the gender binary. Angie Driscoll
