Together with the Dortmund university group of Amnesty International, the Equal Opportunities, Family and Diversity Office has brought the exhibition "Everyone has a gender: their own" to the TU Dortmund University campus. It will be on display in the foyer of the Seminarraumgebäude (Friedrich-Wöhler Weg 6) on the North Campus from April 29 to May 29, 2024. Six intersex people are sharing their individual experiences and their wishes for political and social change.

From medically unnecessary, harmful interventions to everyday marginalization - intersex people experience human rights violations and discrimination in Germany. The exhibition was developed in 2018 as a campaign by Amnesty International and focuses on personal perspectives. These need to be heard in order to create more knowledge and acceptance.

On May 17, 2024 (IDAHOBITA*) at 10 a.m. there will be a midissage of the exhibition. The Vice President Diversity, Prof. Dr. Petra Wiederkehr and the Dortmund University Group of Amnesty International will open the event. Charlotte Wunn, 1st Chairperson of the Bundesverband Intergeschlechtliche Menschen e. V. (Federal Association of Intersex People), will give an introductory talk on the exhibition and the topic of inter* at the university.
