VIMÖ started in 2013. They have as a strong core peer–support and community–building, with dozens of consultation each year, a 4–days training for their counselors, and research on their peer–support work with social work students to improve it. They ensure online community meetings since the pandemic. They also do awareness–raising via social media/media and provide educational (online) trainings. Therefore they started a training and peer-counseling platform, www.varges.at. Regarding advocacy, they work closely with the Green Party in the national government and pursue a human rights based policy to ensure the protection and rights of intersex people, especially children. Thanks to their work, the Ministry of Interior released a new edict regarding the third gender marker, but there’s still work to do since the edict is still pathologising and trans/non-binary-excluding.
