Phoebe is an award winning young filmmaker from Brisbane. She loves spending me with her family and friends, playing ultimate frisbee, Bollywood dancing and gardening.
Phoebe is intersex and has androgen insensitivity syndrome (AIS). This means that, even though Phoebe identifies as a woman, she has XY chromosomes and her body does not respond to hormones in the same way that most girls’ bodies do.
Phoebe explains what it means to be intersex and the difficult experience of not having a shared experience of puberty with friends. She also speaks about the positive difference that having supportive friends can make.
