My name is Court and I have known I was Trans* since I was 3 years old. I always knew I was different. I loved boys toys, I have always had short hair, and I always wore boy's clothes. It was what I liked, but everyone called me she, her, hers etc. It never felt right to me. Luckily I had a family that allowed me to grow up being, well, me. My family and friends accepted me and loved me for who I was and I am fortunate to have the family and friends that I have. They try and do all they can for me, so when I decided to change pronouns from she to he while going into college everyone was for it.
I was always open about being trans because having such a great support system I never felt like I had a reason to be ashamed of who I was. The reason I never changed pronouns before than because I thought it was such a big task for everyone in my life that I didn't think that they would do it. I was so wrong. So, freshman year of college I was now he, him, his and it felt so right. It matched who I was.
The summer following my freshman year in college I told my mom that I could not hold off transitioning anymore. It was getting really hard towads the end of highschool and I couldn't hide it anymore. That summer I went to a therapist to start the process. Luckily they worked on a sliding scale, so that we could afford it otherwise this would not have been possible. I started testosterone right before I went to school my sophmore year. Since then, I have never felt more comfortable in my body, but there are a few more parts that still need to be put into place and so I turn to you. My family and friends do everything that they can and I know it hurts them to see me on my bad days, where being in the wrong body is overwhelmingly frustrating because they can't help me pay for my surgeries. This is the last step to help me match my outside to how I feel on the inside. I want to be able to wear a tank top, I want to be able to go shirtless on the beach, I want to stop hunching to hide my chest, and most of all I want my mom to stop saying "I am doing the best I can" when it comes to money. I dont want her to feel bad because she cannot help me. I know that we don't have a lot of mony and it needs to be used for bills and food as well as other essentials. I would never expect it to go to me. This is the one way that I will be able to get through though all three surgeries. With your help I will be the man I always pictured myself being.
Lastly, I would already like to thank you for reading my story whether you donate to me or not I appreciate your support
and with that said let me wish peace and love to all of you. Thank you.
