Two congressional Democrats put forth the first-ever resolution recognizing October 26 as Intersex Awareness Day. The resolution, introduced by U.S. Rep. Becca Balint (D-Vt.) and Mark Pocan (D-Wis.), affirms the dignity and the universal human right to bodily autonomy of intersex individuals. Observed annually, the day is intended to raise awareness of the issues that intersex individuals face, to promote understanding and acceptance of intersex identity, and advocate for the rights of intersex individuals, including their ability to access appropriate and respectful health care treatments.
