My name is Debbie. I am in an unsafe living situation. I am a black trans woman on HRT taking estrogen injections and I am creating this sub-crowdfunding campaign to my main Transition Fund because I am in an emergency situation and my safety could be at risk. Since arriving here in Los Angeles, I have connected with UCLA Health. I am currently seeing a speech therapist and I have a primary care physician. I have been taking HRT for a month now and I am pleased with the effects so far. I’m running into trouble though: I have nowhere to live as of Monday, December 21st, 2020. I have been experiencing issues with landlords. I do not have any friends or family go turn to. I do not know anyone here in Los Angeles I could turn to in a situation like this and the resources I was provided are not helpful.
I recently misplaced my driver’s license and my credit card. The hotel I was staying at just put me out today because of the issue with my card. Nowhere in Los Angeles will let me rent without an ID and bank card with my name on it. I had my friend help me transfer money to get the most of my belongings in storage and I do not know what to do. Since then I’ve connected with a local LGBT organization after walking the streets overnight. I need help raising funds for an apartment for a few months. I should be able to find something suitable on Facebook marketplace or Vbro that can give me shelter to help me regain stability and retrieve my identification documents and new card. My friend can help me make the payment until I get my documents I need.
Thanks for reading this.
