Earlier this month it was reported that MTV's show "Faking It" would reveal that one of the characters is intersex -- a groundbreaking moment for mainstream television. Now, the show's star, Bailey De Young, and intersex advocate Emily Quinn have teamed up to bring you a video that aims to educate about intersex identity.
