Support

We believe getting support and connecting with other intersex people is the single most important step on anyone’s journey to emotional healing and empowerment. We provide a wide range of opportunities for sharing experiences and information, through private Facebook groups, monthly hangouts, and peer support groups.

Embrace

The highlight of the year for our members is the Annual Conference, which offers opportunities to connect with other intersex people in real life. Held in a different US city each year, the conference is jam-packed with information, sharing sessions and a great opportunity to forge long-lasting friendships. It’s kind of like summer groups.

Educate

Through blog posts, our newsletter and the Annual Conference, we do our best to educate members on their intersex variation and how to live their best lives. Our Annual Conference is full of information sessions on topics like Intersex 101, hormone therapy, mental health and relationships. We also provide brochures that you can share with friends, family and doctors, to educate the community on intersex issues.

Network

Our members are diverse, and we all have different backgrounds and strengths. If you’d like to get involved in our organization, we would love to have you! Our volunteer committees include Outreach, Marketing, Fundraising and Conference Planning. We will also be starting Regional Groups, so that our members can meet up in real life more often. Please email info@aisdsd.org or fill out our contact form to get involved.

We’re in this together.
