An extract of Morgan’s speech was published by Archer Magazine, with the full version published at the Intersex Day Project:

What really matters is that we are able to make connections with our peers, and that we can dismantle the systems that cause shame and stigma. We share much in common with LGBT communities; we are more likely to be same sex attracted or transgender than non-intersex people, but our distinct issues need specific attention.
