From intersex stigma to Kenya's gospel star

Apostle Darlan Rukih is one of just a handful of Kenyans who publically identifies as intersex, meaning that for biological reasons he doesn't fit the usual male/female categories.

As a child, he faced stigma and violence but his Christian faith helped him to accept who he is. He's one of a number of campaigners who are fighting for legal recognition and protection in the Kenyan constitution.
