Cape Town - Beauty queen Sharon-Rose Khumalo has opened up about being intersexed in a moving blog post. 

The local BSc Biotechnology graduate - who was recently crowned Miss Mamelodi Sundowns 2016/2017 and was a Miss South Africa contestant last year - was diagnosed with Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome (AIS) in 2012.

Now Sharon-Rose has written another beautiful post about being intersexed and being honest about she is. In it she says, "I AM A WOMAN. And an intersex woman at that and our experiences as women, as different as they may be, are very similar and are what bring us together."
