Intersex Peer Support Australia, Aotearoa (NZ) is an intersex peer support, information and advocacy group for people born with variations in sex characteristics and their families.

IPSA is a non-profit organisation, led by people with variations of sex characteristics (sometimes known as intersex) who are passionate about combatting isolation, shame and stigma through community connection and peer support.

At IPSA we seek to tackle stigma and misconception surrounding intersex through education, and advocate on issues affecting the wider intersex community.

We work towards improving affirmative healthcare, fostering intersexy pride, strengthening our community and deepening social culture.

IPSA is a peer-led, not-for-profit intersex organisation and a registered health promotion charity.

Intersex is an umbrella term used to describe a variety of bodies whose innate sex characteristics, whether physical, chromosomal or hormonal, do not conform to female or male stereotypes.

You do not have to use the term intersex to describe yourself to be part of this community.

People with innate variations of sex characteristics, family members and partners are welcome to join through our membership only portal.
