Intersex ArtCar!

Image of a car painted yellow with purple bumpers. The yellow section has purple squiggles and there is a large 3D cartoon snail sculpture on the roof. There is a purple circle painted on the yellow hood of the car like an intersex pride flag. The hubcaps are yellow.


After several days of hard work in blazing Houston summer temperatures Koomah painted and decorated a 2007 4-door Toyota Yaris sedan, transforming it into an Intersex Awareness ARTcar! Thanks to some painting assistance from our Treasurer Jennifer and a little bit of sanding from Mo, we were able to get it finished in time for Houston Pride!

Look for us in the next Houston ArtCar Parade too.

More than just for cool looks and intersex awareness, the future goal of this creation is to provide transportation for intersex community members who are accessing healthcare in the Houston Medical Center, transporting us to speaking engagements at universities, conferences, and educational endeavors at the capitol in Austin.

This ArtCar project made possible by a grant from the BIPOC Arts Network and Fund.


The Houston Intersex Society (THIS) is an all-volunteer BIPOC led Houston-based grassroots non-profit organization for, by, and about intersex people.
