Hi, everyone! ^_^


My name is Jocelyn Charity DiDomenick. I am a male-to-female transsexual who is working on transition. I am also the writer/artist of "Rain", an LGBT-themed dramedy webcomic that attempts to explore said themes in a primarily positive and inspirational light.


What I am NOT however, is wealthy. As a matter of fact, I'm struggling quite a bit financially. Although I've been able to publish the first volume of my comic (and working on the second), I simply don't make that much from it. My wife makes enough for us to get by, but transition is still pretty expensive (including hair removal, legal name change, hormone prescriptions, doctor's visits, and obtaining female clothing) and I can't expect her to pay for everything.


I've applied to part-time jobs, but the market's proven rough; I barely get called back, let alone hired if I get as far as an interview. And job hunting takes up the time I could be spending with the comic. And I personally believe working on the comic is a better use of my time, considering what it means to myself and many of my readers.


So, it would mean the world to me if anyone could lend me a hand. Every little bit helps. The money would primarily go to transition-related expenses, allowing me the ability to afford the resources I need to make my transition a successful one.


Any amount - no matter how big or small - is entirely welcome. I want to thank everyone who donates in advance. Heck, I thank you for simply reading this all the way through. It really means the world to me.


And finally, whether you choose to donate or not, feel free to take a moment to check out my comic.

From the mother of a son who transitioned to a daughter and always is loved beyond words. She introduced me to Rain and I have learned so much. Thank you and much joy.

Your comic has helped me start down my own path of self-discovery, and taught me that it's okay to want to change. I wish I could give far more, but my own situation is not great. I hope you're happiness continues, and thank you!
