We exist to amplify the voices of African Intersex people at the regional level.
We offer ourselves as the African Intersex reference of intelligence for stakeholders and allies who are interested in strengthening the ongoing liberation work for intersex peoples rights and autonomy.
We affirm that intersex people are real, and we exist in all countries of Africa. As intersex people in Africa, we live in a society that perpetuates violence and killings of intersex people by cultural, religious, traditional and medical beliefs and practices.
