Intersex Russia was established in 2017 and is led by two young intersex activists. The group’s mission is to provide accurate and positive representation of the intersex community in Russia, to raise awareness about the existence of intersex people and the issues that the intersex community faces, to make a strong stance for de-pathologization and de-medicalization of the lives of intersex people throughout all of our activities, and to, over time, create a strong network of intersex support groups across the country. Their motto is intersex people to intersex people for intersex people. Intersex Russia’s main constituency is intersex youth in Russia. They are working to eradicate intersex genital mutilation in Russia and in the future are hoping to introduce legal protections for intersex people concerning their rights, safety, recognition and integrity.
