Help Heather move to somewhere healthier!

Hi! I'm Heather,  and this is my GoFundMe. I'm a transgender person living in a rural area in Texas, and am trying to leave as soon as possible. I have always been bullied for being such, both physically and verbally. I can't even remember the number of times I've been called a slur beyond double digits.
Going home wasn't much better. Every day, I'm constantly being reminded of my assigned gender, and the fact that no matter what I do, I will never fit in. I need to start hormones in order to transition, but despite being 18, my family threatens to kick me out if I even consider starting.
I have a friend in Brazil who is more than willing to let me stay with her, but I can't afford to. My family won't let me get a job, and won't let me leave without a fight. I'm incredibly desperate, as I'm being verbally and mentally abused daily.
In the past week, I've been told that I'm a freeloader three times, despite doing most of the housework and helping as much as I can. Please, I need help.
