Long before becoming pregnant, Kori Doty knew exactly how they were going to raise their child.
When Doty was born in the picturesque seaside city of Victoria, British Columbia, in the 1980s, a doctor assigned them as female, but the label didn’t fit. “When I was born, a guess was made [about my gender] because nobody knew better than to do that. And that guess was incorrect,” says Doty, who now identifies as non-binary trans – meaning they are neither a man nor a woman, and that their identity does not correspond with their birth sex. “It caused some amount of complication, upset and harm in my life.”
So when Doty gave birth in November 2016, they were determined not to repeat the mistakes of the past.
Given that giving birth bit I think we can make a guess as to the sex of this individual. Their gender is whatever they wish of course.
