After extensive consultation with our organising partners and committee members, the 5th International Intersex Forum (5IIF) organising committee has made the difficult decision to further postpone the 5IIF to a yet-undetermined date in 2021.
This postponement is due to the adverse developments, health concerns and travel restrictions amid the current global health issues relating to COVID-19. The specific vulnerabilities of members of our community to these health concerns and travel restrictions have been the driving force behind this decision by the committee.
There will be an upcoming announcement with information for the new 5IIF dates. All individuals who have already been selected to participate will be invited to attend the postponed forum, and they will be contacted once the new date is fixed. We are also planning a series of online events in September/October: watch this space for more updates!
Without the continued support of our global community, 5IIF would not be possible; we want to thank all the individuals who have engaged with us until this point and into the future. We believe in the strength of our community and our ability to create great change when we come together: as such, we are looking forward to our gathering in 2021. Please see ilga.org and our social media platforms for new information as it develops.
Until we meet again, we will continue working to create a high level programme for the 5th International Intersex Forum. We look forward to meeting you in Bangkok, Thailand in 2021!
