Kenya will for the first time count intersex persons during the upcoming national population census. For the first time the census questionnaire will have three markers Male, Female and Intersex.

This follows a successful petition to the Kenyan government by intersex persons who are fighting for legal recognition. Intersex persons are individuals born with sex characteristics that do not fit the typical definitions of male or female bodies.
