Hey, folks. Jay here. I’ve got a proposal for ya: I’m lucky enough to be getting my top surgery this August. Thanks to a combination of savings, support, and insurance, I’m able to cover the cost on my own. Up til this point, however, I had a ridiculous number of friends tell me that they want to donate to help me pay for it, but I refuse to accept their money on the basis that it could be put to better use. I know that I’m in a very fortunate and unique position, in this respect, so what I’d like to do is this: I’d like to encourage those friends to use the money that they were planning on donating to my surgery fund and put it towards another trans* person’s affirmation surgery. If you are genderqueer or trans* and currently running a fundraising campaign for any sort of affirmation procedure, please let me know so that I can include you in a handy list of "OTHER FOLKS YOU SHOULD BE GIVIN’ YOUR MONEY TO." And please, please repost this. I want to try to help as many folks as possible get a bit closer to their goals. If you want me to send folks in the direction of your campaign (note: it doesn’t have to be a formal campaign), or if you have any other questions, please reach out to me at email@example.com. Stay strong, friends. We got this.
