Illumination of City Hall for Intersex Visibility Month
Sunday, October 25, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
The City of Houston will be honoring Intersex Visibility Month by illuminating City Hall green. The color green was chosen because it is representative of nature, and intersex bodies are natural.
Per Wikipedia: “Intersex, in humans and other animals, is a variation in sex characteristics including chromosomes, gonads, or genitals that do not allow an individual to be distinctly identified as male or female. Such variation may involve genital ambiguity, and combinations of chromosomal genotype and sexual phenotype other than XY-male and XX-female.”
We will gather on the Reflection Pool side of City Hall. The Co-Founders of the Houston Intersex Society will be talking about living life as an intersex person and what you can do to help create more awareness and visibility on intersex rights as well as offering a Q&A.
