Intersex Awareness Day

Intersex Awareness Day

Intersex Awareness Day, launched in 1996, is a big day for challenging societal norms and championing the diversity of human biology. It shines a light on intersex individuals – people who have reproductive or sexual anatomy that doesn’t fit into binary sex classification. This is a rallying cry against forced gender designation via non-consensual medical procedures that impose ‘normality’ on intersex bodies, often with devastating consequences.


This day calls for serious change. It sets out to galvanise support from global entities, like the UN, to advocate for the human rights and legal recognition of intersex people. It’s a powerful reminder of the surprising prevalence of intersex conditions and the urgent need to combat the discrimination and human rights violations they face, including forced sterilisation and genital mutilation. Today isn’t just about awareness; it’s about igniting a movement for inclusivity.
