Press Release for the 1st Public Event for Intersex Human Rights in Greece

“Intersex Rights and Claims in Greece”

The first public event for Intersex Rights and Claims in Greece will take place online on Wednesday 9/6 at 7 pm.
The event is organized by Intersex Greece with the support of OII Europe. Intersex Greece (Greek Intersex Community), is a nationwide intersex-led collective that fights for visibility, support and the human rights of intersex people in Greece. In the last year, with the constant support of OII-Europe and the expansion of its members, the collective is preparing to become an institutional organisation (association).

As Athens Pride starts, it is the right time to create visibility for intersex people in Greece and the issues they face on a social and legal level. The event is online and does not require registration.
