I am often asked how can we add the “I” responsibly to LGBT+, since so many of us intersex people identify as LGBTQ+ in some way:

Here is how I feel the “I” can be added with responsibility and care:

Below are three pages to print, and several important links that you will need to use as references or add to your webpage if you are an organization. It is so important that the parents of intersex children, and all us intersex people, are guided to informed and safe people.  

Also, below are organizations and support that will reinforce that “No Body is Shameful”, genital integrity, protecting an intersex child from unnecessary sex reassignment genital corrective surgeries as a nonconsenting child.  Plus, will educate that being born intersex is about having a bodily variation and not about having a condition, disorder or syndrome.

Most importantly, these links and organizations below support that an intersex child has the human right to their own self-determination of gender identity, sexual orientation, and gender expression:  

Four PDF Files to print:

1) United Nations INTERSEX Factsheet from United Nations

2) Brief Guidelines for Intersex Allies 

3) Your Beautiful Child, Information for Parents 

4) To Change Medical Policies: Intersex Affirming Hospital Policies By IntersexACT and Lambda Legal

My thoughts about why we should add the “I” now:  Why I feel INTERSEX should be added to the LGBTQ rainbow

I will now use: MOGAI instead of LGBTQIA+



In this Rainbow Talk at the 2016 ILGA World Conference, Mani Bruce Mitchell speaks about intersex human rights and reminds us why we must not leave out the “I” in our advocacy efforts
