20171026LurieEndSurgery028

On October 26th which is commemorated as Intersex Awareness Day, intersex activists Pidgeon, Sean Saifa Wall, and Lynnell Stephani Long of Intersex People of Color for Justice, organized a protest outside Lurie Children's Hospital in Chicago, where surgeons continue to perform unnecessary surgeries on intersex babies and children. The protesters demanded that Lurie end this practice of using nonconsensual surgeries to force intersex bodies into gender binaries. For more information, visit endintersexsurgery.org.
