WINGS

Dar­lan Ruk­i­h’s moth­er tried to keep her child’s inter­sex con­di­tion a secret, but even­tu­al­ly it came out. Dar­lan has become a famous gospel singer, and uses his [pre­ferred pro­noun] wealth to pro­vide refuge for home­less and oppressed per­sons. He also speaks out on behalf of inter­sex peo­ple’s rights, includ­ing the right to be accept­ed and loved. Due to inter­sex per­se­cu­tion, Kenya’s High Court and now the gov­ern­ment have been grad­u­al­ly work­ing on best prac­tices for accom­mo­dat­ing inter­sex per­sons in schools, pris­ons, and med­i­cine; also in fam­i­lies. A Chil­dren’s Rights law passed in 2022 rec­og­nized the right to Inter­sex iden­ti­ty on birth doc­u­ments. A nation­al com­mit­tee on inter­sex is pro­mot­ing aware­ness and best prac­tices, and propos­ing more changes in law.
