A New Voice for Steffi

$960 of $8,000 goal

Raised by 25 people in 6 months
I'm Stefanie, a trans woman. One of the biggest dysphoria issues I face is my voice. While people have told me they love my voice in the 15 years of public speaking I've done, it's something that I don't feel is right for me. As a result, I'm looking to schedule a vocal feminization surgery to get me to the pitch I feel is appropriate. Also, I think I have a fun way to thank you if you donate to help me get there.

For every donation I receive at $10 or more, I'll record almost anything* for you with my new voice once I'm all healed up (approximately six months post-op) and send it to you. Want a Q&A? I'll do it. A reading of a Twitter thread or social media post? Sure thing! Some original prose? Let's do it. (Maybe not a song though. Nobody wants to hear me sing.)

* I reserve the right to decline to record something if it's harmful, either to others or to my new voice. I'll get in touch to discuss options for a substitute if it's something I don't feel comfortable recording.

Where does the $8,000 figure come from? The surgery I need will cost anywhere between $5,000 to $7,000, plus consultation, recovery, and travel expenses. Once I have the ability to pay for the surgery in full, I'll book the date and keep everyone informed of my recovery progress so you know how close we're getting to recording time so you can be prepared to start sending me your requests.

Feel free to spread the word, and thanks for considering helping me slay my biggest dysphoria trigger!

Hi everyone! I had a few questions asked regarding this fundraiser, so I wanted to answer them publicly.

Q: "Will you do multiple recordings if I donate multiple times?"
A: Absolutely! If you want to donate multiple times to help me reach my goal, I'll definitely record multiple things for you. I think the recordings in my new voice will be fun, so the more the merrier as far as I'm concerned.

Q: "If I donated to a prior fundraiser, will you do a recording for that too?"
A: Yes! If you donated to a fundraiser I've done previously, and you donate again to this fundraiser, I'll do a bonus recording request for you. Just remind me when I'm healed up and able to record!

Q: "What if I really want you to sing for me?"
A: I'm not good at singing, which is why I said maybe don't pick a song. But if you want a song, I'll sing. Just be aware that it might not be as good as a reading. :)

I'm very flattered by everyone's generosity so far, and greatly appreciate how many of you want to help me get this surgery. You're incredibly kind and I'm so grateful for your help!
