Billy's top surgery fund

My name is Billy. I am 25 years old, I identify as trans-masc, and my pronouns are they/them. I am raising money to get life changing top surgery. 

I have suffered with body dysphoria for as long as I can remember. I am currently in the process of acquiring hormone therapy, but my chest is the major factor in my dysphoria, anxiety, and lack of confidence - it holds me back. 

Learning about top surgery was groundbreaking for me, but then the reality of the cost of getting there struck me in a whole different way. I come from a working class background, and I have been supporting myself financially since I was 15. There is no way that I can afford this surgery alone.

I bind almost daily, and have done so for the last few years. I suffer from chest problems and asthma, so this can be extremely painful. Sometimes it's not possible for me to bind because the physical pain and breathing problems outweigh the mental pain of not binding.

Each day is a struggle and the wait times for top surgery on the NHS are, as we all know, long and terrifying. This surgery would change my life in ways even I find hard to fathom. I hate asking for help, so I'd like to offer something in return for donations: 

for donations over £50 - a hand-poke tattoo session with myself, or a personalised drawing
(follow @tits444tats on instagram to see my tattoo fundraising campaign, and donate to other top surgery funds too) 

for donations over £25 - a print of my art, if you’d like.

Send a receipt of your donation and what you'd like to [email redacted] to claim either of the above.

Thank you so much for reading.
