Complete Sex

Mónica Maffía, Sophie Stevens (Translator)

Research output: Book/ReportBook


We are constantly asked to fill in forms, tick boxes and put things in black and white. But identity and gender are more complex. Not being able to tick a box doesn’t make us incomplete, quite the opposite, as the protagonist of this short monologue discovers, it can transform and empower us. The process of filling in an application for a passport helps the intersex protagonist to realise that the categories on the form restrict them, but looking to nature, mythology and deities inspires and completes them. In contemporary society we are facing more demands to prove our identity and Complete Sex asks us to reflect on the ways in which we do this.
