As someone that spends a majority of my time and work in healthcare and sexuality, words cannot describe how much I love this article written by Claudia about being intersex. It is spot on with a lot of talking points I use both in presentations and in online courses that I write. Intersex can be a topic that confuses many just because of all the different forms of development and either chromosomal, hormonal, or internal/external genitalia development. This article helps take away the confusion, both through personal story telling and factual/accurate knowledge.
This photo comes from a great article about three African transgender and intersex rights advocacy organizations forming an alliance to enhance the trans and intersex movement on the continent.
I have people from around the world contacting me and asking for help. This article is a resource I’ll use for those in Africa. Seeing organizations out there fighting for transgender and intersex rights gives me the hope that people who feel they are alone and without resources will now be able to take the steps they need to publicly define and express their individual identity.
