Denmark: Open letter on meaningful consultation with people with variations of sex characteristics

As human rights and intersex rights organisations, we are concerned about the way that the Danish Health Authority organised the conference titled “Konference om variationer i kønskarakteristika / Conference about differences in sex characteristics”, held on 30 January 2019 in Copenhagen. Although we welcomed the invitation made to a representative from OII Europe to speak at the conference and to Amnesty International to participate in a panel discussion, the failure to include intersex activists and organisations in the planning of this conference meant that they were not able to participate effectively.
