Intersex Awareness Day

Today is National Intersex Awareness Day, the anniversary of a momentous gathering of intersex individuals in Boston in 1996.  Did you know that intersex traits occur in 1.7% of people, or 1 in every 2000 individuals?  According to GLAAD, that’s about as common as red hair.   People who have intersex traits and variations in sexual development face social, medical, and personal stigmas that many people do not understand, including many other members of the LGBTQIAP community.  Visit www.interactadvocates.org and www.glaad.org to educate yourself and learn how you can become and advocate!
