Elijah's Top Surgery

My name is Elijah, and I'm a young Black transgender man attending college. I hope to major in Biology and Government, and continue to pursue activism and civil justice in many forms. I love birdwatching, drinking too much coffee, reading (decent!) sci-fi, and making art.

Here's the thing- I live in a body that doesn't fit me. It's a pain in the butt.  Leaving my dorm to shower, going for runs, staying up late at the library; it's all over-complicated by chest binding. And as it turns out, asthma and binders aren't a great mix. I'm tired of fighting with my own body.

That's why I'm asking for your help. I'm a LI university student- I don't exactly have an ocean of financial resources. I've been working and saving for years, but just don't have enough put away to cover all the expenses associated with top surgery. Even if you can't donate, please share this wherever you can. I'd really appreciate it.

Best,
Elijah
