Intersex Stories NOT Surgeries

Intersex Awareness Day on October 26 marks the first public demonstration by intersex people in North America. It took place on October 26, 1996 in Boston, Massachusetts outside a conference of the American Academy of Pediatrics. Activists from the Intersex Society of North America (ISNA) took part with allies from Transexual Menace.

Today, a wave of new initiatives are firmly rooted and taking place all over the world. We are seeing great strides being made at all levels. From young people, and adults alike, feeling more brave to pronounce they are intersex to the recent groundbreaking law in Malta--making it the first country in the world to ban surgery on intersex infants!

Be a part of history this Intersex Awareness Day and join the Twitterstorm happening Monday - October 26th at 8pm CDT! Everyone is encouraged to log on that evening and tweet using the hashtag #IntersexStories in order to raise intersex awareness by getting our hashtag to trend globally!

We need 100 people to pledge their support in order for our Thunderclap to work! Together we can create a remarkable future for intersex children!! 

All the info, including easy ways to help us promote this unique event including social media share graphics, can be found here: http://www.pidgeonismy.name/#/intersexawarenessday/
