Oftentimes intersex people are discriminated in many areas of life – including healthcare, employment and education – as they remain largely unrecognised in European societies. The personal story shared in this video is just one out of many. It raises awareness of what it means to be intersex from the moment of birth and throughout life. It describes the kind of issues intersex people face on a daily basis. A supportive social environment is crucial in the fight against discrimination. Greater acceptance and social inclusion of intersex people – and those belonging to other sexual or gender minorities – can be an inspiring and educational experience. After all, diversity is what makes life rich.
By publishing this video, the European Commission is honouring Intersex Awareness Day and taking a stand against discrimination. #EU4LGBTI
