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.
