Intersexions: Black, Queer, and Intersex

Ever thought about what the I stands for in LGBTQIA*? It surely doesn’t stand for invisible! Actually, about 1.5% of the population is born intersex. We’re not rare, just invisible. What is Intersex? Come learn exactly what being intersex means and how to be an inclusive ally to the community. Help fight everyday erasure even in the Trans and Queer community, while looking at people who hold intersexional identities, specifically being Black and Queer. Bring your questions and get answers from someone who is intersex, black, and queer. These questions can be from a range of different perspectives. This includes hitting points ranging from inclusion in your Biology classes to how to navigate bringing in resources for intersex people into your student health center on campus. Learn what resources are out there, i.e., InterAct, AIS/DSD support group, OII-Australia, and more.
