Photo by Richard Man: BJ, 2016
BJ was born intersex. The doctor said “it’s easier to remove bits than add things,” so BJ grew up as female despite having a stocky physique, going as far as playing high school football as a girl. Biology caught up with him in his 20s and his body began to shut down until he had corrective surgery. BJ is a lawyer, spending 20% of his time working pro bono on children’s cases. The rule is that the kids can play with the toys they can reach on the shelves and he has a couple cases of toys.
