Organisation Intersex International (OII)

Organisation Intersex International is a network of Intersex organisations worldwide. OII is represented in Australia by OII Australia, “an independent support, education and policy development organisation, by and for people with intersex variations or differences. Our work focuses on human rights, bodily autonomy and self-determination, and on evidence-based, patient-directed healthcare”.

“Intersex people are born with atypical physical sex characteristics, so that our bodies do not fit typical definitions of male or female. We have diverse bodies, identities and life experiences.

OII Australia is a national body by and for people with intersex variations. Our goals are to help create a society where our bodies are not stigmatised, and where our rights as people are recognised.” — OII Australia

The OII Australia and OII International websites have an extensive range of resources, publications and multimedia.
