Intersex

« Back to Glossary Index

Someone who is born with private body parts or whose bodies grow in ways that are different from what is expected of men or women.

Sometimes people who are intersex are also transgender, non-binary, or gender diverse, but most of the time they are not. Many people who are intersex are straight, but they can also be gay, lesbian, bisexual, queer, asexual, or none of these.
