Intersex Awareness Day on October the 26th marks 20 years since the first demonstration by intersex people took place. It is still true that intersex people are widely ignored and misunderstood by society and unfortunately all too often by LGBT organisations such as ours. The Leicester LGBT Centre aims to be inclusive of the intersex community too and is committed to raising awareness and supporting all intersex people.
On the 26th October, the Centre will be hosting an informal discussion and Q&A session from 1pm to 2pm for everyone interested in the particular challenges faced by the intersex community, or would like to find more about these, and to share ideas about how the Centre and the LGBT community can be more inclusive and supportive for intersex individuals. Anyone from the local intersex community, as well as allies and supporters is welcome to come along and share their thoughts and experiences, and discuss the support and solidarity which the Centre can provide in the future.
