July 3rd, 2012 – Intersex Chicago

       6:30 to 9 PM

       Are you intersex? Have you ever felt you fall between the male and female check boxes? Intersex people physically differ from the “standard” male and female. These differences might be genetic, hormonal, or genital.  We have features typical of both male and female at once or may have no clearly defined sexual features at all.  There are many different kinds of intersex people.

       Intersex Chicago is a peer-led casual conversation group for those who identify as intersex or think they might be.  It is also open to significant others, family, friends, allies, or anyone with questions.

       Meet other intersex people at Intersex Chicago. Make new friends. Find out more about intersex.  Explore and celebrate your difference.
