Affirm the Darlington Statement

The following two affirmations were agreed at the second Australian – Aotearoa/NZ intersex retreat, in April 2018. Public affirmations are published periodically, and are subject to review. See current signatories.

Affirmation by persons with intersex variations

As someone born with physical or biological sex characteristics that are more diverse than stereotypical definitions for male or female bodies, I affirm my commitment to the Darlington Statement, as developed by intersex organisations and advocates in 2017, which articulates our human rights in Australia and Aotearoa/New Zealand.

I urge our allies and supporters to actively acknowledge the distinctiveness of and diversity within the intersex population, and respect the intersex movement, without tokenism, or instrumentalising or co-opting intersex as a means to other ends.

I demand full adoption of the human rights and legal reform, health and wellbeing, peer support, education, awareness and employment objectives of the Statement.
