🔍Diving Deeper into Intersex Awareness

Have you ever heard the term "intersex"?

It refers to individuals born with a variety of sex characteristics that don't conform to the traditional definitions or normative conceptions of male and female. In essence, intersex is a natural facet of human diversity, and it's crucial to understand and support intersex people for better inclusion and acceptance.

👁️‍🗨️ Unveiling the Facts:

  • Approximately 1 in 1,500 to 1 in 2,000 births results in an intersex variation. It's more common than you might think.

  • Intersex is not necessarily a “third sex”, as many people don’t even know they are intersex until long into their adulthood, if at all.

  • There is no such thing as an “intersex body”, all bodies are valid under the intersex spectrum, and beyond.

We stand by Intersex Voices 🗣️

On this Intersex Awareness Day, we champion diversity, awareness, and acceptance. It's a day to recognize and amplify intersex voices. Together, we can create a world where every individual's worth is honored, irrespective of their sex characteristics.

Join us in promoting intersex visibility and breaking down the walls of stigma, myths, and prejudice. Together, we can make a difference! 🤝🏳️‍⚧️💜
