Josephine-Joseph, a renowned circus sideshow performer, held audiences in awe with their incredible talent for seamlessly transitioning between two distinct personas. This extraordinary person embodied both male and female identities, skillfully navigating the challenges of a world that often struggled to understand their fluidity. Josephine-Joseph claimed to be intersex, or as it was known during their time, a” true hermaphrodite”. Intersex is a term that refers to individuals born with a combination of physical, genetic, or hormonal characteristics that do not fit typical definitions of male or female. These variations can affect a person’s reproductive or sexual anatomy, leading to a wide spectrum of intersex traits.
