I was spit on, kicked, pushed down stairs. Teachers & students called me a lady boy, half-person, it, & a tranny. I then got my GED. Today I am stronger. I need top surgery to prevent more emotional scars. I'm going to the Community College of Rhode Island and majoring in fine art to be a teacher. I have been on Testosterone, give myself a shot of it in my leg since January 2013. I also got my name changed that year. I am the first person in RI to get my gender changed on my birth certificate without surgery first. The one thing that I still desperately need is top surgery so I won't have to deal with dysphoria. Dysphoria is the feeling I get when people use the wrong pronouns/name, looking at myself in the mirror, people calling me names, or looking at me the wrong way for being transgender. I always knew I was a boy I just never told anyone. In grade school I would stand up when they asked the boys to stand. I wanted to play sports and play videogames but I was ostracized. I really want to go on the beach shirtless. I am very involved in my community and eager to make a difference. I live without my chest binder but not without getting beating up and taunted. Some of my family disowned me. I want to pass as myself. I don't want to prove my happiness, my gender, my pronouns or my name. I want to help all the transgender kids, even by showing them that it is possible, to dream of a day without dysphoria. Nobody should have to go through what I've been through. "Ask and you shall receive.", "The hardest challenge is to be yourself in a world where everyone is trying to make you be somebody else." I didn't choose to be this way. I really don't want anymore trans people to die from ignorance or suicide. I tried to commit suicide four times. Insurance won't pay for my surgery, please help me get one step closer. Donate 1$, even that will help. I appreciate what you can do, spread the word. A share (by mouth, email, Twitter, etc) is as good as a donation. All I want is equality. And of course, no more moobs. Please help, thank you for your support, I couldn't accomplish this without you! Whatever you can afford will help me. Please show your support in this journey.

Hi Jason, Thank you so much for you kind words as well...it is wonderful to know that I am making a difference in some way. And I'm glad you're taking more art classes...I think you will be a great teacher! I really do think it's the best job in the world. Anyhow, best of luck, and I hope you get all of your funding soon! Best, Brooke

I can't donate, but I think I can speak for most of my friends, my whole family, and my Gay-Straight Alliance when I say we truly support you!
