Per Wikipedia
Intersex people are individuals born with any of several variations in sex characteristics including chromosomes, gonads, sex hormones, or genitals that, according to the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, "do not fit the typical definitions for male or female bodies". Such variations may involve genital ambiguity and combinations of chromosomal genotype and sexual phenotype other than XY-male and XX-female.
Because sex (as in, sex, not gender) is bimodal (tending to two groups, as apposed to binary which can only be one of two states, eg, on or off) intersex is often used as a catch-all term for those tending to the extremes or in the middle of the two "standard" definitions of sex. It is estimated that between 1 and 2 percent of the world's population is intersex (source).

One reason Intersex is used in the LGBT+ sphere and acronyms is common struggles faced in terms of identity and erasure of intersex people with other gender and sexual minorities. However that isn't to say they are the same struggles, as an intersex person has different needs in regards to their gender identity than transgender people do, sometimes. This is where a separate identity comes in.

Someone who is intersex can probably do a better job of this than I can, but for now here are some basic resources to get started. Its important to remember that intersex people are just as healthy and "normal" as anyone else, and should not have to face discrimination.
