There is very little sexual, domestic and family violence information and research that specifically focusses on or includes people with intersex variations. Much more attention, resources and support is needed for the intersex community regarding sexual, domestic and family violence.
The LGBTQ Domestic Violence Awareness Foundation is proud to affirm our commitment to the Darlington Statement, developed by intersex organisations and advocates, which articulates the human rights demands of people with intersex variations in Australia and New Zealand.
We actively acknowledge the distinctiveness of and diversity within the intersex population, and respect the intersex movement, without tokenism, or instrumentalising or co-opting intersex as a means to other ends.
We’re here to be a good intersex ally by raising the visibility of intersex community priorities, as articulated in the Darlington Statement, and deferring to intersex-led organisations such as Intersex Peer Support Australia (IPSA) and Intersex Human Rights Australia (IHRA). These organisations are intersex-led so we defer to them rather than to speak on their behalf.
