Belgian model Hanne Gaby Odiele, 29, who has walked for major fashion houses like Versace and Dior and starred in campaigns for Alexander Wang, Moschino and more, came out as intersex on Monday, and says she hopes to use her public-facing platform to speak out against intersex genital mutilation. Odiele has partnered with InterACT Advocates for Intersex Youth as a spokesperson and hopes "to bring awareness and put to light the irreversible, unnecessary, non-consent surgeries we often go through as kids."
