Intersex Society of Zambia (ISSZ)

Intersex Society of Zambia exists to work and facilitate for the recognition and protection and promote access to social, legal, economic, spiritual, and political frameworks of intersex persons.

Intersex Society of Zambia was founded in 2018. For some time, issues affecting the intersex community have not been much addressed, and if they are, there isn’t much. Intersex issues have just been on paper and the needs of the intersex community are not really understood and most organisations dealing the LGBTIQ+ community assume that the needs of the intersex community are about sexual orientation, expression and gender identity. Intersex Society of Zambia exists to work and facilitate for the recognition and protection and promote access to social, legal, economic, spiritual, and political frameworks of intersex persons and to transform them into well informed, motivated and active individuals to live a fulfilling life, archiving their dreams and contributing to their communities in Zambia, regionally and globally.
