Fostering Intersex Advocates: interACT and Bailey De Young
In July of 2015, interACT executive director, Kimberly Zieselman, presented actress, Bailey De Young, with the Honorary Orchid Award at AIS-DSD Support Group’s 20th annual conference in Cincinnati, OH.
Bailey De Young probably had no idea she would become such an inspiring contributor to the intersex rights movement. When approached about supporting interACT’s fight for intersex rights, Young wholeheartedly agreed on multiple occasions, all of which were outside of the scope of work for her role for the show. After receiving the Honorary Orchid Award she signed autographs and posed in pictures for countless intersex youth, many of whom personally related with Young’s character, Lauren.
