Fundraising For Transition

Hiya! I’m Tahliah, a 21 year old trans feminine person based in Glasgow, Scotland. I am raising money for the continuation of my transition.

For the past few years, I have been financing my own transition, however, I have reached the end of my ability to fund the continuation of my journey and I am asking for help in the form of donations. I am a working class art student, entering my final year at Glasgow School of Art.

I no longer have the ability to work extended hours on top of my studies which is where my ability to finance my transition process has been sourced until now. I’m a DJ and music producer and have used the money I have earned through my art towards financing a smooth transition, however, the rising cost of medical expenses is making this no longer possible.

My current waiting time to be seen at a NHS GIC (Gender Identity Clinic) is around 2/3 years. This is the main reason I decided to access private healthcare, as the thought of continuing living in a body I don’t identify with for another three years was excruciating. I hope you can understand why I am raising these funds for myself. I have calculated the appropriate amount of funds to last me (hopefully) until I am seen at an NHS Gender Identity Clinic and a transfer of care is issued.

In order to continue with my transition, I need to pursue the following treatments:

* Gender dysphoria diagnosis 
* Continued access to medication therapy
* Blood monitoring
* Blocker injections
* Follow up regular assessments with a doctor
* Laser hair removal

I am currently fully supporting myself, paying rent and bills on top of a financially demanding course in terms of materials etc. I have been struggling until now alone, and have continuously reached out to the NHS for support however this is not being met with any urgency. No amount of money is too small and if you are willing to give, it would be absolutely appreciated. If you can’t afford to donate, I completely understand and would appreciate it if you were to share this page to reach a wider audience. <3

Also, feel free to contact me privately if you have any questions you want to ask!
