The first OII Europe Intersex Community Event is coming up! It’s going to take place in Vienna on March 30th and 31st – inter* people from all over the continent and beyond coming together to share ideas and experiences, discuss regional differencies, identify common priorities and last but not least having great time together!
To create an impact also into Austrian society, the Community Event is followed by the Intersex Conference on April 1st – a public day with lectures, panel discussion and workshops in the prestigious Mayors House of Vienna. And of course there will be a nice little party in the evening!
More information about the public event coming up soon here: www.intersex-conference.at
intersex people only
Who might come?
Intersex is an umbrella term for the experience of being born with a body that does not meet the societal expectation of male or female. We are individuals born with sex characteristics that are either female and male at the same time or not quite female or male or neither female or male. Our sex characteristics and bodies are healthy variations of the human sexes.
* In German-speaking countries we also use the term inter* with an asterisk, which stands for the diversity of intersex peoples’ identities, bodies and experiences.

The venue for the Community Event is the Austrian Trend Hotel Parkhotel Schönbrunn, and we recommend having accommodation there for all people attending the intersex community event – Despite of how it looks this hotel was the cheapest option for us 🙂
