Claudette was born with both male and female genitals, lovingly supported by her Swiss parents, who raised her in Morocco as a boy with a gender-flexible name. At a young age Claude fell in love with an older neighbor, a relationship that lead into a brothel... Later married with two children, Claudette eventually took up her profession again as well as the role of fierce activist, speaking to the Euopean parliament, other prostitutes from a stage and potential clients on the street.
