Intersex Philippines started as an online group until its members decided to form the group and register as an organisation to represent the intersex community of the country. Their goal is to advocate for the collective need to be included in society without stigma and prejudice. The main idea of the group was to give support to fellow intersex individuals in the form of online counseling and sharing of experience since intersex individuals are isolated thus making it difficult for them to discuss their body, health, sexual orientation and other issues. The group organized its first-ever IntersexPhilippines Forum in December 2019, giving rise to its membership and visibility in online and other forms of broadcast media in the country. The organization aims to uplift its members’ lives by giving them the opportunity to learn skills that they can use for their income building capacity to support themselves since intersex individuals face difficulties in finding economic means of living.
