Intersex Anatolia/ Intersex Turkey/ Intersex Shalala

Intersex Turkey voluntarily works for advocacy among LGBTI+ related events.

The intersex rights started to be discussed in Turkey among transgender movement around 2010-2011. A transgender organizer Ali Gül, lost to cancer since then, was one of the initiators. Due to the lack of human resources, the intersex movement cannot be strengthen itself and it is still supported by LGBTI+ organizations. The three organizers voluntarily work for advocacy among LGBTI+ related events. Although there are more intersex people that they know, those people are working as civil servant or they are not ready to come out to public; therefore, they are not that active in the field. The overall mission of the group is to raise awareness on intersex rights.
