YOUth&I: Issue 1

YOUth&I is a collection of literary and artistic works from young intersex people.

To be intersex-born with variations in sex characteristics-is not to be any one thing. To live with an intersex body means to navigate a world not designed for you. At best, you must constantly face assumptions about your body and assumptions about your identity, as well as scepticism and inappropriate healthcare. At worst, you experience a complete disregard for your bodily autonomy and integrity, medical abuse, distrust and fear, and lies about your body and history.

Here is a community of young intersex people. Here is YOUth&I.
