Intersex Human Rights Australia, First posted  Content last reviewed 

These resources have been developed in collaboration between the Darlington Consortium members (Intersex Human Rights Australia and Intersex Peer Support Australia) and LGBTIQ+ Health Australia (formerly the National LGBTI Health Alliance). They are aimed at making services intersex friendly.

Genuine inclusion goes beyond terminology and definition and considers the health and wellbeing needs, and diversity of people with intersex variations.

This suite of resources includes:

  • Inclusion guide to respecting people with intersex variations: Information about who are intersex people, helpful terminology, defining inclusion, measuring inclusion, intake forms and research, and a checklist on using appropriate terminology – download PDF version
  • Raising the bar: How to be an intersex ally, respecting the diversity of the intersex population, doing your research, using appropriate language, acknowledging leadership and prioritising consent – download PDF version

The Raising the Bar and Inclusive Practice guides provide toolkits to move beyond terms and tokenism and take meaningful action. These guides are intended to help make your service, project or program intersex friendly.
