Intersex People

intersex

We’re here to help intersex people take control of their health.

We recognise and celebrate the diversity of the intersex experience, so when we use the term ‘intersex’, we include all people who are born with physical sex characteristics that don’t fit medical norms for female or male bodies.

We acknowledge the distinctiveness and the diversity within the intersex community and support the human rights of intersex people and respect the intersex human rights movement. We support this movement without tokenism, or instrumentalising, or co-opting the issues intersex people experience as a means for other ends.

We have affirmed the Darlington Statement and encourage other organisations and bodies that support the intersex movement to also recognise the Darlington Statement.

While acknowledging the distinctiveness and the diversity within the intersex community we are also working to provide inclusive programs and services relevant to intersex people. Our services are delivered by people who genuinely seek to understand the health issues affecting our communities and all of our services are inclusive of intersex people.

We also encourage intersex people and their allies to contact Intersex Human Rights Australia (IHRA, formerly known as OII Australia) at ihra.org.au. IHRA is an independent support, education and policy development organisation, by and for people with intersex variations or traits.
