Oii–Chinese was established in 2008 to provide Chinese–speaking intersex people information created by intersex people and to bring intersex people together for peer support. They provide support for Chinese–speaking intersex people through an online group, especially with the pandemic and its impact on mental health. They also wrote an article as part of the calling on “advocate, protect and ensure the LGBTI rights to be respected” from the UN human rights experts for the CEAW review invited to Taiwan. They produced a 20,000 words document about intersex human rights issues that was then included in the curriculum for civil servants in Taiwan. They then gave a lecture on the topic to civil servants at a national level as well as high school teachers. Check out a video interview with Oii-Chinese’s Founder Hiker Chiu: Hiker was also featured in our 2016 Intersex Awareness Day video:
