Intersex Ukraine was founded in 2013 by Julia, an intersex woman, to address social isolation and in Ukraine.
Intersex Ukraine was founded in 2013. They have since developed tools for awareness–raising such as a brochure in Ukrainian (the second expanded edition was recently published): “Who Are Intersexes And How To Be Full Members Of Society Without Losing Themselves” with a lot of social and legal information. Their awareness raising manifests itself as well in a first photo exhibitions about intersex people, and a first documentary on the same topic in the national Ukrainian TV. They also created a short public video about intersex rights, that was presented by two national TV stations and then performed as a social video in a cinema in Kiev, for a week, before each screening. They are also involved in international advocacy, participating or being represented in the CEDAW press conference as well as in the UN Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights “Meeting with partners”. They have strong European connexions, participating in the European Intersex Community Event as well as the ILGA Europe Conference.
