Model Hanne Gaby Odiele reveals she is intersex

  • Belgian model Hanne Gaby Odiele, who’s walked in runway shows for Alexander Wang, Versace and Moschino and even appeared on the cover of Marie Claire Italy, has revealed that she is intersex.
  • “It is very important to me in my life right now to break the taboo,” Odiele told USA Today. “At this point, in this day and age, it should be perfectly alright to talk about this.”
  • What that means is that Odiele was born with sex characteristics (such as genitals or chromosomes) that don’t fit the standard definitions of male or female. 
  • According to the United Nations, 1.7% of the world’s population is born with intersex traits, and Odiele is one of the very first people in the public eye to really speak out on it. Read more
