IntersexUK (ISUK) Intersex Awareness Day 2016 Video
IntersexUK (ISUK) is a human rights organization working to achieve equality for, and the protection of Intersex bodied people. IntersexUK’s vision is to ensure irreversible genital mutilations, sterilisations, and other nonconsensual abuses against healthy intersex-bodied children are stopped. A child’s body is theirs for the whole of their life and the right of that person’s autonomy must be respected above the right of others to ease social discomfort. ISUK released this video for Intersex Awareness Day 2016.
