Human rights for intersex people

Recently there has been a flurry of activity on human rights in Australia:

  • The Human Rights Commissioner has finalized his report into same sex relationships and is in the process of finalizing his Sex & Gender Diversity report.
  • The federal government has appointed four eminent persons to conduct community consultations on Human Rights issues and report back.
  • The Queensland government is currently conducting a Human Rights enquiry and NSW is looking into a Bill of Rights.
  • There are few people aware of the complete lack of Human Rights and legal protection against discrimination and vilification for intersex people anywhere in the world.

There has never been a better time to take a stand and speak out for Intersex. If you have the opportunity to participate in Human Rights consultations, make a noise for intersex.
