The future of this project

The Intersex Day project was established to share intersex histories and promote human rights events for Intersex Awareness Day and Intersex Day of Solidarity. We do this by inviting people to share their stories as “comment”, and by documenting actions. Even in the three years that the Intersex Day Project has been established, the intersex movement has grown significantly. This has affected us in two ways. Firstly, there are more events to document, and so we increasingly can only capture some events. Secondly, we ourselves are participating in more actions around the two intersex days.

This means that we have to reconsider how we continue as a project. This might mean seeking the involvement of more people in documenting actions (but we have to acknowledge that the funds available to pay for this are limited). This might also mean focusing more on collecting histories and commentaries by people involved in the movement.

We’re interested in your thoughts. Are you interested in getting involved? Can you give a day or two of your time in late October or early November? Are you interested in writing comment or a history of someone in – or an event by – the intersex movement? Is it ok for us to document more events after they take place, instead of beforehand? Let us know!
