American intersex activist Pidgeon Pagonis has created artwork in memory of Muhadh Ishmael, the intersex victim of a recent  attack orchestrated by his hostile  family in Kenya.

In a post on Twitter that’s illustrated with an artistic rendition of Joseph Odero’s photo of Muhadh in the hospital, Pidgeon urges, “Donate to Muhad’s funeral via 76crimes@gmail.com on PayPal, or buy a print & I’ll give 50%

Pidgeon is an intersex activist, lecturer and consultant from Chicago who has worked since 2006 to expand the visibility of issues related to the intersex community.

For more information about Muhadh’s life and death, read the Dec. 23 article, “Intersex in Kenya: Held captive, beaten, hacked. Dead.”

For more information about donating money to pay for Muhadh’s funeral and to support steps to persuade Kenyan authorities to seek justice for him, read “Will Kenyan intersex victim get a decent funeral at least?”

Contributions can be made to the Muhadh Fund via the 76crimes@gmail.com account on PayPal. For other options for donating, write to 76crimes@gmail.com.
