Intersex South Africa and Iranti mark Intersex Day of Solidarity

Newly relaunched, Intersex South Africa has published a video with Iranti to mark Intersex Day of Solidarity.

Intersex Day of Solidarity occurs every year on 8 November, and so Iranti joined with Intersex South Africa, a newly relaunched organisation advocating for the rights of intersex persons, to look at what it means to be born outside of the gender-binary.

Intersex persons may have any of a range of variations in genitals, gonads, sex-chromasomes or hormone levels. This natural variation often results in non-consensual surgery on intersex newborns, infanticide or lifelong stigma.

Representatives from ISSA thus speak out here, about their experiences and hopes for the future of intersex persons in South Africa.
