ITANZ is a charitable trust that provides information, education and training about intersex people in Aotearoa, New Zealand.


The Intersex Trust Aotearoa (ITANZ) is a charitable trust that provides information, education and training about the experiences of those with variations in sex characteristics (also known as intersex) in Aotearoa, New Zealand. ITANZ is one of the oldest registered non-profit organisations in the intersex activist community globally.

The purpose of the ITANZ is to improve the lives of intersex people, their whānau and allies by challenging normative attitudes, raising awareness and celebrating diversity.

ITANZ is an intersex led organisation. It aims to support and increase the representation of the diverse perspectives held by the intersex community. We daily work towards bodily autonomy for all people with variations in sex characteristics.

ITANZ will utilise the generous funding from donors to:

• Upgrade our dual websites, ITANZ & Intersex Youth Aotearoa in order to reach and educate more people, and to assist those isolated in our community.

• Continue to develop resources and training materials relevant to Aotearoa.

• Attend relevant national and international hui to raise awareness and to advocate for intersex issues.

• Write and deliver key workshops for schools, health professionals and organisations on how to be a supportive teacher, doctor, or friend to intersex folks.

About us:

ITANZ is governed by a Board of Trustees comprised of six-ten members at any one time. The Board employs one permanent Executive Director (30 hours per week), one Communications Manager (5 hours per week) and one volunteer treasurer who oversees the financial and administrative functions.
