A body I am Safe in

Hi! My name is Phoebe VanCleefe. A Southern Black Trans Sex Worker, Interdisciplinary Artist, Empath, and Counselor.I’m currently looking for support with upcoming surgeries. As a financially poor black trans woman who is also experiencing the pandemic, even with current employment, I am not able to to make these things happen on my own. I appreciate that you are even here reading this!❤️

Gender Disphoria is, at times debilitating for me. There are moments when I literally cannot take out the trash without experiencing a panic attack that someone will accost me.  This fear is not misplaced, as we know that at least 36 Black Trans Women have been slain, simply for existing! I just want to be able to feel whole and comfortable inside my body, as the outside world continues to neglect our safety and security.

It’s no secret that Trans Women are almost  never supported in these ways. Nevertheless, I’m asking for $25,000 for top surgery, facial feminization,  and aftercare costs as well as food/housing supports. This will cover most costs, and support me as I’ll be out of work during this time.

This is extremely hard for me, as making my needs publicly known is a foreign concept. However I will not be shamed or ashamed, as girls like me rarely ever get to have that luxury. Think of it like this.  THIS CAN BE THE MOMENT YOU CAN SUPPORT A LIVING BREATHING BLACK TRANS WOMAN!  YOUR DOLLARS CAN FUND A HAPPY, LESS DISPHORIC LIFE!
