Blayk's Transition Fund!

Hi there! I'm starting this fundraiser for my beautiful wife Blayk who is a transgender woman. In two weeks will be exactly 1 year of her medically transitioning. As most of you know, transitioning medically and socially costs quite a bit of $$$! 

Some of you may also know that I was diagnosed with Covid-19 in July and that unfortunately took us out quite a bit on medical costs and savings while also being out of work for our 14 day quarantine period. I know  we're all struggling in the middle of a pandemic, civil unrest, record unemployment etc but if anyone has anything extra to send our way we would be eternally grateful and it would make all the difference to us! 

We both lost our jobs at the beginning of the pandemic and are without medical insurance. Blayk is currently working a delivery wage job that helps us pay the bills. While I as a massage therapist and dancer have been limited to online work that isn't incredibly dependable and varies monthly.  I want to be able to provide and help Blayk on her journey to continue to love herself inside and out. Anyone who's been around her over the last year i'm sure has witnessed how much she's blossomed into her womanhood and I want to be able to help her achieve her transition dreams and make them more attainable. Here is specifically what this fundraiser is for in regards to her transition: 

- Full facial and some body electrolysis. Facial electrolysis can take from 100 hours to over 400 with prices that range about $50-$150 an hr. The total price will be in the thousands of dollars, with an estimate of between $2,000 and $16,000 or more, with the average probably somewhere near the middle of that so i've estimated at $10,000 to be safe.

- Legal name change and gender marker change. This costs $250-$300 to change on your ID in the state of TX. Update: We've just been informed it's possible this can be waived with an affidavit! 

-Gender-affirming therapy. Mental health is so important but also costly! We are currently saving up and have found an ideal therapist who specializes in Transgender issues and support during transition. Her rate is $120 a session and we are hoping to start seeing her twice a month. 

Any extra will go towards body electrolysis, HRT, gender affirming clothing, and any extra life/transition expenses.

Let me know if you have any questions or would like to donate/help out in any other way!

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and much love from us both,

Caiti <3
