What Does Intersex Mean?

Intersex is an umbrella term to describe people who are born with natural sex characteristics (including genitals, gonads, and chromosome patterns) that do not fit typical binary notions of male or female bodies.

NATIONAL COMING OUT DAy 2021

"Don’t come out unless you want to. Don’t come out for anyone else’s sake. Don’t come out because you think society expects you to. Come out for yourself. Come out to yourself. Shout, sing it. Softly stutter. Correct those who say they knew before you did. That’s not how sexuality works, it’s yours to define.”― Dean Atta

Pride - It's worth fighting for
 

The ongoing impact of COVID-19 globally means that, this year, most in-person Pride festivals are cancelled. But it’s also worth remembering, that for millions of LGBT+ people around the world – stigma, discrimination and criminalisation make participating in Pride events impossible every year.

 

But this doesn’t mean that LGBT+ people are any less proud of who they are. In that sense, Pride is never cancelled...

It’s National Coming Out Day!

Zoey Black, our Legal and Education Advocacy Officer, sat down with a few of her friends and documented their thoughts on queer identity and their stories and experience around coming out. 

 

This very raw short film gives an intimate perspective into the conversations and experiences of gay, bisexual, lesbian, trans and non-binary persons in Cape Town, South Africa.
