New Everyone Is Gay Post!: Where Are All the Intersex People At?

Hi, everyone! A new post, hot and fresh, is up at Everyone is Gay! Many intersex people have had a hard time trying to find other intersex people - either online or in real life. This post provide some ways you can meet other intersex people, virtually and/or in person, so that you can share experiences, give advice, make friendships, and build community.

I mention in the piece that when I met an intersex person for the first time, it literally changed my life. The impact of knowing there are other, real-life, breathing, living intersex humans out there cannot be underestimated. I wasn't alone, and I had proof in the form of a smiling person looking right at me. Community is so important. At a time in history when many intersex people aren't out, though, it's harder to find others like yourself. But with the advent of access to the internet, finding other intersex people is much easier than it used to be.

I hope you enjoy! <3
