Disclaimer; The current goal set may fluctuate as my situation is very rocky and Blue is my gender affirming nickname and a photo of me will not be included due to the possible harm and harassment me being outed as queer black woman could bring me pls be understanding and respectful of that.
i’m coming here as a total last resort so please hear me out. I’m a trans black 18 year old girl living in canada in a very hostile and abusive household. I am constantly subjected to physical abuse from my mother and older brother and after recently being outed because my mom went through my laptop without my permission. i’ve been given a deadline of a month to move out as my mom doesn’t want me “being a bad influence on my younger siblings”. rent in toronto is extremely expensive and i’ve found a possible room i could rent out for the time being but my savings isn’t enough to secure housing. i might be able to live with a friend for a little while but that isn’t a solid option and i really really need this money to survive.
the money i raise will be for;
- food (my mother has cut me off and having to order food everyday has exhausted my savings)
- winter clothes (that i’ll probably thrift)as i don’t have many right now and constantly have to work in extremely cold conditions and have gotten frost bite twice this year
