As an afterparty, we had a reading of intersex testimonials from our #MyIntersexStory publication:
Read our 108-pages strong brochure “#MyIntersexStory – Personal accounts by intersex people living in Europe” with fifteen testimonies by intersex people and their families and with fifteen colourful illustrations by intersex artist and OII Europe staff member Ins A Kromminga. This book also includes a text by intersex scholar and sociology professor Janik Bastien Charlebois “On our own terms and in our own words”: The value of first-person accounts of intersex experience.
