I’m Alder, parent, bartender, and trans person living in Washington State and I am asking for help.
If you are aware of trans troubles you’ll know often surgery is one of the only real options to help the psychological disparity between body and mind, to be able to live day to day without having the freedom to be comfortable in ones own skin or clothing and the health risks involved in wearing undergarments such as binders in order to help “pass” as the gender/s one identifies with.
There is good news…
Recently Washington state has included top surgery into it’s laws as what is covered by insurance and I am on my way to get all my hens in a row in order to have the procedure.
However, this will put me out of work for a bit and that leaves me with bills I can not cover… rent, food, school payments all those things adults have.
I’m surrounded by amazing people in my life who’ve already offered as much help and support as they can from monetary donations, to volunteering to watch my daughter while I recover initially. However, I’m still a far cry from my total need to cover two months of bills (I need $2,400 or so more) and while I’m stuffing as much as I can with each paycheck into savings I need further help in order to achieve my goal.
So I turn to you… to help in any way possible. Be it donating or even just spreading the world anything helps.
If I reach my goals and find I have extra funds anything left will be donated to either an individual needing help such as myself or a lgbtqa community center such as Lambert house.
So please… Donate to the cause. It can help more than just one person in the end!
