This page hosts essays from the Intersex Awareness Day 2020 collection, on themes of Intersex Health and Resilience.
interACT works to prevent and reduce the harm that so many intersex people face so young. We know the pain of unwanted medical interventions. And, what happens if and after that harm has already been done?
How might intersex adults regain more of a sense of control in their lives? What language do we use to find support and feel more at home with ourselves? And what kind of a future do we want to see?
We’re exploring these questions with a series of personal essays by our intersex youth, allies, and community members. Look for a new piece each Monday leading up to Intersex Awareness Day (IAD) 2020, which falls on October 26th.
