PFLAG welcomes persons with intersex conditions (also known as Disorders of Sex Development, or atypical, “non-standard” sex development) and their families as fully participating members. PFLAG members should be sensitive to the needs of persons with these conditions and their families.
PFLAG supports efforts to end the secrecy and the medically unnecessary genital surgery experienced by some persons with intersex conditions. PFLAG welcomes the efforts of medical organizations, support groups, and others, working toward this end. PFLAG urges the entire health care community to establish and adopt a patient-centered treatment protocol under which patients and families are treated with the utmost sensitivity.
