Kia ora friends and whanau!

I'm a 28 yo genderqueer trans man looking to fund his top surgery. I've been socially transitioning on and off since I was a teen, living full time as a man for the past three years and kicked off my medical transistion with HRT 2 years ago. Of course, no modern day transition would be complete without having to beg for funds from your loved ones because we live in a Capitalist hellscape.

Since Doomsday is surely coming for us, until we can learn to treat others with kindness and respect (and redistribute the wealth 😘) , I would like to meet it looking the most like my fabulous inner self I possibly can. And I need your help!

You see my loves, mastectomies aren't funded by the higher cost treatment pool for trans patients as they are a surgery that is "available" publicly. Fancy boy that I am though- I am going private.

It would mean a lot to me if you could contribute! Any amount will help, since I'm saving up my salary too. If I do not meet the funding goal, I will continue to save my own funds until it is reached.

If, in the incredibly unlikely event I decide not to go through with surgery for whatever reason, the money will be donated to Inside Out, a queer youth organisation in New Zealand. If you're not into that, cool, I will look into ways to getting your contribution refunded to you.

Use of funds

Fee breakdown:

Surgeon: $6600

Anaesthetist: $3500

Theatre: $6051

In patient overnight: $1608

Consumables: $3750

Garment: $176

Total: $21685

In the event we overshoot the rest will be donated to queer and trans orgs here in Wellington.

We haven't reached the goal yet, but I would still like to give people the opportunity to donate and share. Every little bit helps.

I know the world is a scary place right now, so I thought I would allow more time for those who would still like to donate but may be struggling at the moment. Kia kaha, be kind to each other.
