More than 100 activists marched to Parliament on Wednesday to celebrate the International Day of the Intersex Child for the first time in Kenya. Intersex Awareness Day was set aside for grassroots action to end shame, secrecy and unwanted genital cosmetic surgeries on intersex children. The day also provides an opportunity for reflection and political action for the sake of the intersex community. The activists carried placards written "let me be", "intersex rights are human rights" and "voice of inter-sex children" in their march from Michuki Park.
