Intersex Awareness Day – best of the blogs

27 October, 2015


For Intersex Awareness Day 2015 – my pick of interesting articles which capture a range of different perspectives on intersex awareness, education and activism.

You might be interested to note that the CMS on this blog underlines both intersex and Intersex as spelling mistakes. Maybe this tells us something about intersex (in)visibility.
