Intersex people exist.

Haven't heard of us? We're not surprised. We are often "normalized" at birth or soon after... Meaning we’re sculpted via surgeries and hormones to fit into one of two boxes (M/F), in a false binary shaped by stigma and shame.

But we believe there's another answer... A world that's less black and white; one that seeks to lift up, rather than erase, our humanity.

Learn more about the ~2% of your community that was born with any of a range of characteristics that may not fit traditional conceptions about male or female bodies.

Show up to discover the beautiful diversity of your Austin neighbors! Stay to help us open our community's eyes to the beauty of the blur:
