iCon UK

iCon UK represents the interests of people born with intersex traits/variations of sex characteristics (VSC) / diverse or differences in sex development (DSD), hereafter intersex* people and their communities.

Interconnected UK (iCon UK) was officially registered as a charity in January 2020. It began as a group called “Intersex and Allies” which has been operational since 2018. The group was formed when members of existing intersex-led groups forming an alliance, with an aim to provide a peer-support space and guidance space for families and the public. At the heart of iCon UK’s core belief is the positive representation of all intersex people. iCon UK represents the interests of people born with intersex traits/variations of sex development and diverse or differences in sex development (DSD). We do not use just one term, as we know each carries its own purpose and community – our goal is to provide peer support; advocate for better protection, human rights, and to educate society towards understanding and acceptance.
