2004 LGBTI Health Summit

Classification: Presentation

ISNA board member Esther Morris Leidolf and Judy Bradford will present “Integrating Mental Health Services within Intersex Patient Care” at the 2004 LGBTI Health Summit in Cambridge.

ISNA Executive Director Cheryl Chase will present “What LGBTI Health Activists Need to Know (& May Mistakenly Think They Know) About Intersex”.

ISNA is not and never has been in favor of three sexes, no sexes, or eliminating gender—but many mistakenly believe that these are part of ISNA’s agenda. This workshop will present ISNA’s actual agenda, which includes the key points that intersexuality is basically a problem of stigma and trauma, not gender; that parents’ distress must not be treated by surgery on the child; that professional mental health care is essential; that honest, complete disclosure is good medicine; and that all children should be assigned as boy or girl, without early surgery.
