Can I get a copy of the speech “Interse Bodies and the Society that shapes them”. Like to use in my PhD thesis: “Right to Interex Identity”

Much appreciated.



Hi Rogena, the speech doesn’t take place until late November, but it may be published after that.

Thanks, and good luck with your thesis! Morgan
