You want to know, or already know what the I stands for in FLINTA or LGBTIQA+? You want to support the INTER* movement? But don’t know exactly how.
In this workshop we will discuss more details of what kind of support is the best one. What is ok to talk about and at what point it is important to include intersex led organizations in your work.

We demand a law for the protection of intersex children and adolescents!
Until today, intersex children and adolescents experience medical interventions that are neither self-determined nor necessary. Their bodies are surgically and hormonally altered from an early age – and this only because they do not fit into the medical and social norm of male or female bodies. This often leads to great suffering, trauma and physical discomfort.
Intersex children and adolescents have a right to physical self-determination! Austria must protect them effectively – and this can only be done with an appropriate law.
