Over 60 buildings in 19 counties across the island of Ireland lit up in purple last night in solidarity with Ireland’s intersex community. The campaign was coordinated by the Intersex Mapping Study Ireland in association with Intersex Ireland. The Intersex Mapping Study at DCU aims to learn about what life is like for the intersex community to help bring about positive change. The team is led by Dr Tanya Ní Mhuirthile who is a legal expert on the subject of how the law affects the lives of intersex people. Ní Mhuirthile joined the chair of Intersex Ireland Sara R Philips for an episode of In & Out last week which focused on Intersex Solidarity Day and outlined the importance of documenting the lived experience of intersex people in Ireland.
