Descrizione prodotto


"Viloria does us the even greater service (it's more of a gift, really) of showing us what it means to live not just as both a man and a woman but also as a third gender that eventually emerges as the right one."―New York Times Book Review

"Intersex babies often have their dual gender surgically 'corrected,' but trailblazing activist Viloria didn't. Her book is fierce, brave, and a clarion call to celebrate our differences."―People

"[A] poignant and powerful story."―The Washington Post

"How do you discover who you are when you are born outside of what culture has decided is possible? Hida Viloria answers this question with this moving and essential memoir, a personal history that is also something of a history of America's blind spots around gender and sex."―Alexander Chee, bestselling author of The Queen of the Night

"Intelligent and courageous, [Born Both] chronicles one intersex person's path to wholeness, but it also affirms the right of all intersex and nonbinary people to receive dignity and respect. A relentlessly honest and revealing memoir."―Kirkus Reviews

"Groundbreaking....This brave and empowering book deserves a wide audience."―Library Journal

"Born Both is a courageous and compelling personal story that helps give us the necessary knowledge and understanding of the complex topics of intersexuality and gender fluidity. Hida Viloria has boldly brought us along on this journey of understanding and pushes us forward to become a more inclusive culture where we value everyone--not in spite of our differences, but rather because they make us perfectly and uniquely us. A must read."―Jane Clementi, co-founder of the Tyler Clementi Foundation

"Hida Viloria's touching and generous memoir shines a beautiful light of understanding not only on what it's like to discover, explore, and own one's identity as an intersex person, but also on what it means to be human. Through heartbreak and humor, Viloria writes with welcome candor and insight--and shows us that there is so much more beauty, brilliance, and complexity than can ever be contained in the categories 'male' or 'female.'"―Sam McConnell, producer of HBO's The Out List and The Trans List

"Words come alive in Born Both, which Hida Viloria has written with intellectual sophistication as well as passion for intersex activism. In this memoir, Viloria eloquently tells a deeply personal story within larger structural narratives of race/ethnicity, gender, and class, making for a simultaneously pleasurable and informative read. This book will not only captivate those interested in intersex activism and gender revolution but also those who enjoy skillful storytelling."―Georgiann Davis, PhD, Assistant Professor of Sociology at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and author of Contesting Intersex: The Dubious Diagnosis

"Viloria's personal, positive, vibrant, and emotional work of advocacy will educate and affirm."―Booklist

"A valuable resource for those seeking first-person narratives by intersex people."―Publishers Weekly


Hida Viloria is a writer and intersex activist, chairperson of the Organization Intersex International (OII), and founding director of its American affiliate the Intersex Campaign for Equality, also known as OII-USA. Hida's mission is to obtain equality for intersex and nonbinary people as part of a broader vision for a world that accepts and values difference of every kind.

5.0 su 5 stelle very Highly Recommended!! 2 aprile 2017
Di Rt - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
I've been involved with community education, organizing and activism around Intersex rights to self-determination for many decades. It is so very good to now have such an articulate, well written, wide-scope yet personal, downright interesting book to Highly Recommend to people asking for more information.
The author's writing style makes for very easy reading!! A totally accessible book, while still packed with tremendous amount of information along with the author's personal story.
I've been waiting a ling time for a book like this, stories, memoirs, autobiographies are such important ways for many people to gain their first real experience/info on other people's lives.
I'm looking forward to when we have a long list of such by other Intersex People -- they'll be happily welcome in my personal LGBTUQ lubrary.
Until then, this book is a Highly Recommended book to read a very interesting life story!!
Thank You.

I liked Hilda's personal descriptions of what it was like, what happened and what it is like now.
There's an extremely urgent message concerning the STOPPING OF Infant Intersex Genital Mutilation.

4.0 su 5 stelle Well written on a new topic 7 aprile 2017
Di JordanAsh - Pubblicato su
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
I worked with Hida in the LGBT movement in the early 90's. At that time I knew her as an intelligent young woman, but never thought she was intersex. I'm so glad she wrote this book as I have heard of the "corrective surgeries" that have been imposed on babies who don't fit into the "typical" male/female anatomy and I'm glad she escaped this.
I recommend this book to anyone who is interested in the emerging genders that are atypical!

4.0 su 5 stelle Important book 17 maggio 2017
Di Prairiefemme - Pubblicato su
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
A very important book on a little-known condition. Reading her memoir definitely helped me understand what intersex is and what issues intersex people face in a world that tends to fear anything different. It's recommended reading but I did find myself getting bored about 2/3 of the way through the book. She goes into quite a bit of detail in long passages about medical/societal/psychological issues and for me it got to be overkill. I just skimmed the last 1/3 of the book.

5.0 su 5 stelle Honest, intelligent and engrossing 5 aprile 2017
Di Lisa Marie Simmons - Pubblicato su
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
I was much moved by Hida's honest, intelligent and engrossing chronicling of her life as an intersex activist. I admit to being woefully ignorant on the subject of being intersex and what that entails. This is necessary reading for anyone who, like me, wants to actively support and champion any ignored or abused minority and celebrate life.
