Intersex Awareness Day 2022

Intersex Awareness Day is celebrated internationally on 26th October annually to raise awareness about the human rights violations faced by people with an intersex variation. In recent history, children with an intersex variation have been subjected to non-consensual, irreversible, cosmetic genital surgery to make their genitals appear more typical. Many of these medical interventions are known to cause long-lasting, traumatic after-effects.
