For nearly a decade, the National LGBT Health Education Center has been providing educational programs to health centers and other health care organizations with the goal of optimizing health care quality and eliminating health disparities for sexual and gen- der minority people. Recently, we and our parent organization, The Fenway Institute, Fenway Health, have come to recognize the imperative to more actively include the health of intersex people in our mission and training programs. Therefore, all of our pro- grams now use the acronym LGBTQIA+, which refers to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, asexual, and all sexual and gender minority people. As part of our commitment to sup- porting the health of all LGBTQIA+ people, we have written the following community-informed clinical guide on primary care for intersex people. The guide provides an overview of intersex terms and concepts, the health concerns of intersex people, intersex-af- firming practices, and resources for further learning.
