Georgiann Davis is an intersex person, activist and assistant professor of sociology at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Georgiann has written a great article for The Parents Project on five helpful things that parents can do to support their intersex child.

“Intersex is only one aspect of your child’s life. It might be something that they need your help navigating, or it might be the least of their concerns. They might be bullied at school for something completely unrelated to their intersex trait, and need your help navigating that. They might struggle in math class. They might fall and sprain their ankle at soccer practice. Their needs will vary throughout their life, and might even vary across any given day. What’s important is that you are always listening to their needs and doing whatever it is you can do to assist, support, and love them throughout their lives.”
