Previously, she had spent time at an all-boys school; not the easiest place for someone who describes herself as "super-feminised" from a young age.But she always knew who she was, and had support from her family, including her younger brother.Xxxora has previously given her support to a campaign led by a group of intersex women.Now, however, she has launched her own Silver Bo(x) Campaign, petitioning the UK Government to recognise those born with a reproductive or sexual anatomy that does not fit the typical definitions of female or male, and to stop such infants undergoing non-consensual and irreversible surgery to "fix" their sex.It is important to realise that the black-and-white binary that is in people's heads is neither scientific nor accurate.We need to establish that the middle biologically exists and is part of our world.

Then there's her name – crafted around ideas of chromosomes, derogatory Spanish slang, and an inversion of the hardcore XXX symbol (which she tells me originated in the brewing industry as a sign of premium strength)."I hate pigeonholes," she says. For me, it is about finding archetypes and reclaiming words.It became the norm to operate on these children in the 1960s; in the belief that they were helping the child, doctors assigned their gender and operated to reinforce it – sometimes without the parents' informed consent.Although there are no comprehensive statistics on the number of operations still carried out, it is believed some babies and children will undergo such surgery in Britain this year.It is believed to be the first series of pieces exploring the role of the hermaphrodite in nature.She will also be holding a regular film exhibition on the same theme at the Cinema Museum in south London from next month and will feature in an exhibition called Art for Youth at the Royal Academy of Arts in October. Rebecca Wilson, chief curator and director of artist development for the Saatchi Art website, on which XXXora is featured, says that her "works are arresting, challenging and have an urgency to them which is very powerful"."Art is a megaphone and a loudspeaker," says XXXora, explaining how it is critical to her campaigns.
