The rights of intersex persons gained visibility between October 26th (Day of Intersex Awareness) and November 8th (Intersex International Day). During this period a number of excellent articles were published in English but also Spanish. We highlight The marks on our bodies, by Mauro Cabral (in English and Spanish), and Intersex rights and freedoms, by Morgan Carpenter.
ARC International has also published an article by Arvind Narrain The Right Not To Be Mutilated: Intersex People and The Quest For Justice and it is also important to highlight launching of Astraea Intersex Human Rights Fund, intended to support organizations, projects and campaigns led by intersex activists working.
We also highlight a relevant and positive change for LGBTI rights that comes from Bolivia, where transgender people are about to be officially able to change their name, sex and gender on legal documents, as announced by the Justice Minister.
