ITANZ is proud to share the role of host Ropu, alongside the Tiwhanawhana Trust and RainbowYOUTH for this years ILGA World Conference, 2019!

ILGA is being held here in Te Whanganui-a-Tara.

Up to 400 people from 160 countries are attending this year's conference! Over 30 intersexy people are among this wonderful bunch.

Our visitors for the conference feature many activists and contributors to LGBTIQA+ organisations. 

Over 120 scholarships were granted for the event, supporting delegates from 87 countries – over 75% of whom come from the Global South. A strong emphasis was placed on supporting people from marginalised population groups and identities - including sex workers, persons with disabilities, persons living with HIV, and more.

ITANZ is stepping into 2019 with a bounce! We are welcoming Georgia to Wellington permanently for a new exciting role as the Rainbow and Inclusion Adviser at Victoria University of Wellington. Georgia's relocation to Te Whanga-nui-a-Tara compliments the move at the last ITANZ AGM to appoint Georgia as Chairperson of the board. Mani is stepping into the Executive Director position. These changes recognise with great joy that we have a greater capacity of intersex folks to hold more governance roles. Speaking of which, the newest member of the board Jelly O'Shea has agreed to step into the Communications Project Manager role. She comes with a wealth of knowledge in this area and is excited to bring greater intersexy awareness to Aotearoa. 

This year we at ITANZ will be updating you regularly through our this website and our facebook page with all the amazing work that were are doing. So keep an eye out!

Aroha to all our allies and intersexy friends.
