Introduction to Intersex


As stated in my article in the December issue of Vital VOICE there is going to be an open conversation about Intersex. Since this is all new to me and I think our STL LGBT community as well let's talk about it and learn what Intersex means.

I will answer questions that many of you have asked of me personally. I will share my stories and feelings with you. I am not claiming to be an expert.

Dr. Teresa Knight of the Women's Health Specialists of St. Louis will be on hand to answer questions also.

Dr. Knight is a board certified Obstetrician/Gynecologist and a Fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology. Born and raised in Northern California, Dr. Knight completed her undergraduate education at U.C. Berkeley, graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in Integrative Biology and a minor in Women’s Studies. While attending college she received recognition for her contribution to the development of a traveling health clinic for the homeless and for perinatal services for homeless women. Dr Knight earned a Master’s degree in Anatomy and Neurobiology from Saint Louis University where she also attended Medical School. She completed her residency at St. John’s Mercy Medical Center in St. Louis. In addition to her medical accomplishments, Dr Knight speaks Spanish and she is a licensed pilot.
