Vivir y Ser Intersex

Vivir y Ser Intersex (literally, Living and Being Intersex) was initially founded as a blog with the purpose of creating original contents about intersex in Spanish language, since a vast majority of contents online are available only in English.

Vivir y Ser Intersex (literally, Living and Being Intersex) was initially founded as a blog with the purpose of creating original contents about intersex in Spanish language, since a vast majority of contents online are available only in English. Among its goals are: raising awareness of the complexities of being intersex; to create a space to reflect on the need to understand why intersex people rights matter (especially when talking about bodily autonomy and self-determination); educating people on what “intersex” stands for; and the need to change the social structures that impact the life of intersex people in negative ways (stigma, discrimination). The project’s main goal for the next few years is to bring all these ideas to public spaces to create consciousness among physicians, lawmakers and fellow human rights advocates, working along with them to produce an effect on public policies to depathologize intersex traits and ensure physical integrity and bodily autonomy for current and future generations of intersex people, within the Mexican context.

The project’s site has been visited so far by people especially from all over Latin America and Spain, but also from the US and other countries.
