Hey, I'm Blue (Pocket). I'm a non-binary artist and writer.
I started my medical transition in 2016 and hormone replacement therapy in 2018. Since then, I have waited 3 years for contact regarding my top surgery, following my surgery referral in early 2018.
Unfortunately, my surgery referral was lost in the system and I have fallen in between the administrative cracks. Upsettingly, stories of lost referrals are very common problem in the NHS gender clinics, and like me, many have devastatingly resulted in being discharged completely from the gender clinic and referral system. This is due to the current immense strain on the NHS gender clinics from increasing referrals, cut funding, and the impact of the pandemic.
I have been binding for almost 13 years, and this discomfort and toll on my body is something I have to adjust my life around. This is why I’m now making this fundraiser and asking for your support.
*All funds that are remaining beyond my surgery and recovery will be redistributed to other trans people who are raising money for their gender affirming surgeries.
No raffles, sweepstakes, giveaways, or returns on investment are offered in exchange for any donations made to this GoFundMe.
