Understanding the Intersex Community

with No Comments

Intersex people are born with a variety of differences in their sex traits and reproductive anatomy. According to experts, upper estimates are that nearly 2% of the general population is born with intersex traits (more than the entire population of Japan!). There is a wide variety of difference among intersex variations, including differences in genitalia, chromosomes, gonads, internal sex organs, hormone production, hormone response, and/or secondary sex traits.

This resource was produced in collaboration with InterACT, an organization that uses innovative strategies to advocate for the human rights of children born with intersex traits.
