November 8, 2022, is Intersex Day of Remembrance, which is also called Intersex Day of Solidarity. It is observed annually on November 8, which is aimed at raising awareness on the issues and challenges faced by intersex people globally. Also, it is a call for solidarity from government, human rights organizations, groups, and individuals.
Intersex Day of Remembrance in honor of the birthday of Herculine Barbin, a nineteenth-century French intersex person who tragically committed suicide after being found by doctors to be intersex, tried in court for gender fraud and forced to reassign their sex to male.
Intersex Day of Remembrance is a day to honor all the intersex people throughout history who lost their lives due to deep discrimination and intersex oppression. We remember those intersex people who are no longer with us. We honor all the intersex people throughout history who lost their lives due to discrimination and intersex oppression.
We also send our deepest thanks to everyone who has stood in solidarity with the intersex community over the years and the many who continue to. We couldn’t do this without you, and together we are truly stronger.
