About Our Speakers and the Service:
Mx. Anunnaki Ray Marquez is an intersex survivor, a parent of three kids, a spouse to James Bunce for twenty-nine years, and an intersex activist and educator. Anunnaki’s activist and educational work focuses on an individual’s right to bodily autonomy, and the right to express their true gender. As a gender nonconforming androgynous intersex gay man, Anunnaki legally emancipated himself, and on September 17th, 2018, became the first in Colorado to receive an intersex birth certificate. This last October, 2018, he was honored to be picked as a TEDxJacksonville speaker and shared his intersex story at the Florida Theatre. He will be giving his TEDx Talk live for the congregation of BBUUC, and then his husband James will share about what it was like to be married to an intersex person who changes their gender identity. Both will allow time for questions and response. It is their hope to build bridges of understanding so that all people, no matter how they label themselves, be given self-determination over their own gender identity and be given dignity with human rights.
Anunnaki is an intersex advocate for Jax Youth Equality and is founder and president of The ANUNNAKI Foundation: www.TheAnunnakiFoundation.org.
This talk will be PG-13 but childcare is provided for children through our nursery and RE classes.
