Cody Smith, the Senior Project Officer with Intersex Human Rights Australia, presents a deep dive into the complexities of language in the intersex space. A lot of the language used among community members is complex and nuanced, engaging with often conflicting ideas of what it means to live with an innate variation in sex characteristics. A lot of this nuance is further lost in broader discussions where terminology developed for LGBTQA+ communities can be harmful to intersex discourse.
This webinar offers an opportunity to bring all those awkward questions you have about language, ideas, and communication, and pick it apart with someone who relishes the challenge of having better conversations about human rights. This webinar took place and recorded on February 23rd, 2022.
