Why does this community need help?
The people within these communities are often separated from other minority groups because the nature of their being is regarded as a taboo or private subject—sex. They are in danger of being invalidated and erased, as conservative circles in local and national governments attempt to nullify those who don’t identify with their assigned gender. There are millions of Trans, Queergender, Non-binary, and Intersex people around this country that face worse discriminations and violence because they appear different. Science has shown that biological sex is not black and white, and the concept of gender is artificial.
Who is Su?
I am a business owner and a long distance runner. As an Intersex person I have felt discrimination against myself, because of the way I dress, look, or how I choose to refer myself. For most people going through day-to-day life doesn’t involve strangers asking whether you are male or female. Nor do others tell you that you’re not dressed appropriately. No matter what a person looks like, everybody should be afford the equal rights and dignities.
When & Where?
This trip will take me 10 days covering about 175 miles. Hiking front the western edge of Massachusetts to Somerville, at the end of August, 2020.
The funds raised will be donated to AthleteAlly and InterACT, after initial expenses are covered. AthleteAlly works to end homophobia and transphobia in sports. InterACT advocates for Intersex youth, and their rights over their own bodies.
Anything you are willing to contribute would help me greatly. I will also be looking for people who may want to join me for parts of this journey.
