The documentary on intersex and gender variance directed by Antony Thomas has aired in the UK on Channel 4 and in Canada on CBC. Now it’s getting an American premiere on HBO as scheduled below (check local listings). To watch the trailer and see a clip of Calpernia and Andrea on the show, go to the Deep Stealth “Middle Sexes” page.
On HBO’s America Undercover series, Gore Vidal escorts us through the ambiguities of “gender-blurring” in Middle Sexes: Redefining He and She. Besides chatting up biologists, anthropologists, and psychologists about the complicated family lives of intersexuals, transsexuals, and transvestites, as well as the homophobic rage of middle-American males, he also tracks down and visits with the “third sex” hijras of India, the “lady-boy” kathoey of Thailand, and same-sex senior-citizen couples in Suriname, none of whom seems to be the least bit violent.
