My Lived experiance relates to Intersex.
Please change your selection box to Intersex . Intersex individuals are not Intersexual!
In your what does your experiance relate to you need to have an Intersex box if you wish to have your organisation include Intersex stories and be inclusive of Intersex.

I understand you are doing this with good intentions however these kind of omissions give the impression Intersex is inclusion is windowressing
