“Markus Bauer, co-founder of StopIGM.org, has been a (non-intersex) intersex activist for 10 years, and his work has been crucial in making intersex human rights actually happen at the UN. His half-hour presentation at the “Genital Autonomy Symposium 2015″ [abstract] is a valuable introduction to intersex human rights and social movement strategies, and also explains where the “Maltese Legislation” falls short of widely recognised human rights basics.” – Daniela Truffer
