While human rights protection for individuals with non-compliant sexual orientations
and gender identities (SOGI) has gained more attention internationally over
the past years, which has led to actual improvements, discrimination against intersex
individuals has mostly remained invisible to this day. This premilinary study offers a first overview of the life situations of intersex individuals
from 12 selected countries in various regions of the world.

The study provides points of departure for strategies to improve the human rights situation of intersex
individuals and recommends to actors how to develop measures in this area in order
to render visible gender diversity as a means of enhancing human rights protection.
