Intersex

Intersex is an umbrella term used to describe a wide
range of natural bodily variations. Intersex people are born with sex characteristics that do not fit typical binary notions of male or female
bodies. In some cases, intersex traits are visible at birth while in others, they are not apparent until puberty. Some chromosomal intersex
variations may not be physically apparent at all.
