VIMÖ and the Inter-Solidarity Committee are organising a demonstration for Intersex Day of Solidarity on 8 November. The evening event will begin at the Justice Ministry on Museumstrasse.
We want to raise awareness for the situation of intersex people.
Surgeries and/or hormonal treatments are still performed on inter* children and youths without them being able to give a free and fully informed consent – as a consequence they often suffer for a lifetime.
As long as there are only “women” and “men” in our law, in our educational and medical systems and in our minds, people whose sexual characteristics do not fit in neatly, are forcefully being adjusted and made invisible.
Together with inter* activists we demonstrate to point out demands, spread information and to call for solidarity. Being intersex must no longer be taboo!
For more information about inter* visit vimoe.at and plattform-intersex.at. We support the demands of VIMÖ and PIÖ: http://vimoe.at/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/Positionspapier-VIMÖ-PIÖ.pdf
