Intersex Awareness Day (IAD) is and international event coming up on Monday, October 26th. Let's help the world stay woke to intersex people, our lives and our collective struggle for justice and bodily autonomy by all going on Twitter at the same time (a power-hour) and tweeting our intersex story, or that of a loved one, using the same hashtag #myintersexstory. The goal is to get our hashtag trending on IAD this year! Not intersex or don't know anyone who is? That's okay, you can help by re-tweeting and quoting tweets that catch your eye or that you support. And no matter who you are you can also tweet out why you believe people sharing #myintersexstory is an important step in attaining human rights for all people. Please tweet me @pidgejen or email me with any questions.
See you on Monday October 26th! (Don't have twitter? Sign up now--it's super easy!)
Oh and it just so happens that MTV's Faking It! starring the world's first intersex main character in a network sitcom will be airing the same night...So watch the new episode as you tweet along... And who knows, maybe even MTV will participate? ;)
