The Journey from Selwyn to Sally – A three-part article and interview from the Natal Witness, covering her life from early ANC activism up to her joining the Quakers after the then Cardinal Ratzinger had expelled her from the Dominican Order.
The life of Sally Gross challenges many of our preconceptions about who we are, especially in a society that accepts only two genders, male and female. Born Jewish and classified male at birth, Gross later became a Christian and a Dominican priest. But Sally Gross is not transsexual, she is intersexed. This is the first of three articles in which she tells her story.

This, the second of three articles, explores Sally Gross's search for an identity within the context of the Catholic priesthood which resulted in the 'biggest trauma' of her life.

https://isna.org/pdf/gross2.pdf
For Sally Gross, coming back to the country of her birth where she was still classified as male was no simple matter. This final article in a series of three looks at what happened.

Sally Gross, Founder and Director of Intersex South Africa

“The holy life is well proclaimed,
directly visible, immediate,
Where not in vain is the going forth
of one who trains heedfully.”
