Happy Intersex Awareness Day!
This is an excerpt from a resolution commemorating the 20th anniversary of Intersex Awareness Day, signed by more than 60 organizations and leaders from around the world:
1) All intersex people have the right to make their own decisions affecting their bodily integrity, physical autonomy, and self-determination.
2) Medically unnecessary treatment, surgeries, and sterilizations of intersex people should not occur without said intersex person’s full informed consent.
3) Intersex people and the families of children born with intersex traits should have access to non-pathologizing psychosocial and peer support.
Intersex pals, you are wonderful, you are valid, and you have the right to your own body. Supporting you 100%, today and every day.
