What is FFS?
Facial Feminization Surgery (FFS) is a set of reconstructive surgical procedures that refine typically "male" facial features to bring them closer in shape and size to typical "female" facial features. This is just one type of "Gender Affirming Surgeries" often undergone by trans folks.
I am really bad at articulating myself and we all know the feeling of asking for help but at this moment I need support, so here it goes: I am in need of help from my friends, family, loved ones near and far and the kindness of strangers to help me fund my FFS. With your help, I hope to become closer to myself and my inner image of who I am and to also ease the pain of living in this society that doesn’t recognize me and responds often times with verbal or physical contempt simply for living my truth. At the end of the day I want to live freely without the fear of losing my life. I am on a journey of self-love and for me this FFS is an important part. And it will only be with your love and kindness that I am able to do so.
Who I am:
My name is Alyha Love and so far, life has taken me in the direction of bridging communities with New World Dysorder, a trans collective I co-founded in San Francisco in 2016. Till this present day I am still doing the same work but in Berlin, Germany while also DJing. I believe music brings people together, provides a moment of refuge or can spark a moment of joy.
Where your money is going:
I am very grateful to the San Francisco health plan because it is with them that I am able to achieve this next step in my life but as most insurance policy works, I will have to pay a deductible. On top of that I will be traveling from Berlin to San Francisco and living there for a few months to heal. San Francisco is one of the most expensive cities right now so your money will be going towards my surgery, my housing, feeding myself, therapy and time to adjust to my new self image. As you know for many trans folks sex work is often an industry that we must turn to so I will be honest, I will not return to sex work as that is not an option for me anymore. I had to turn to it once in my life for survival but hopefully with this campaign I won’t have to. I understand there is a lot of causes out there that are in need of assistance and support, so every donation makes a difference, truly.
Thank you so much for your time and your help.
