Bridging Trans and Intersex Movements

This session will address the tensions, frustrations, and hostilities between and within trans and intersex communities over sex and gender binaries, authenticity and biological essentialism, medicalization and pathologization, double standards regarding forced interventions and access to resources, and the fear of heightened violence and discrimination. We will also discuss ways in which we can work in solidarity with one another, share resources and skills, and strengthen our movements.
