My name is Eli. I am a trans masculine person, who lives in Miami. I’ve always wanted to be shirtless. Since I was a little kid I’ve always had mostly male friends, I have no sisters and only have two older brothers and everyone around me never wore a shirt to play outside. I loved the feeling of being barefoot and running around, feeling the wind on me, and did so without a shirt till I was told that I was making others feel uncomfortable. I was confused and embarrassed because I didn’t understand why my chest was different than my friends and I just wanted to do what felt right. This feeling from before puberty has always stuck with me, and with the development of my body a new feeling has arisen. With me coming into my trans identity a lot of the confusion I’ve always felt has gone away, and I am a lot happier than I use to be, however the feelings of dysphoria and betrayal towards my own body mostly centered around my chest, have only intensified. Everyday I wake up and bind my chest, not only for the days I plan on going out but for the days I’m at home as well. I put myself through the pain of compressing my chest against my ribs, just to lessen the pain having my chest causes me in the first place. So I’ve decided that I want to finally feel at home with my body and to launch a gofundme page, to help me get closer to this goal. Not one of you is obligated to donate, but I hope you’ll understand how much this means to me. Thank you for the love and support.
