The Houston Intersex Society (THIS) was founded June 27, 2012. The mission of the organization is to support and help end shame for those that were born intersex, DSD, hermaphrodite, eunuch, zwitter, and etc..
The intention of this group is to create dialogue, offer support, build our community, understand the depth of our identity, and foster friendship.
We represent our dual nature with the symbol of the Feng Huang phoenix. It is a mythical creature of Chinese legend that is composed of the male Feng and female Huang birds.
