Help a Black Muslim Trans Student with Surgery!

Hello! My name is Avery and I am a trans woman. My pronouns are she/they. I am currently a student at university in London. I started my transition early this year in February with hormone replacement therapy but it has not helped me with my gender dysphoria and that is why i am now considering surgery as an option for my happiness.  HRT has affected me emotional, physically and mentally ... especially due to the complete lack of support from friends and family. 

Before i started my transition, i was subject to abuse both emotional and physical at a very early age from family members for being very feminine. .  I come from a very strict muslim background, my identity has always remained anonymous however when i finish university i plan to come out and express my gender identity freely.  Hopefully, i will move as far away from my family and escape this ongoing persecution and begin a new chapter in my life.

Surgery plays a vital role in my transition as it lowers the chances of physical assault and being publicly harassed for being a transwoman . There are many differences between the female face and the male face and below i will list the procedures i wish to get done.  I will also list how I intend to spend the 10,000 i have listed as the goal along with my savings.

Brow Bone Contouring - This is the main facial characteristic of males and is just above the brow bone ( approx $5500)

Jawline - A prominent jawline is another distinctive feature of a masculine or male face (approx $4000)

Tracheal Shave - Shaving the adams apple which is the staple of male identity  (approx $2000)

Breast Augmentation -  I feel this surgery would allow me to feel more comfortable within my self and ease a great deal of my dysphoria (approx $4500)

This GoFundMe will be used to support both my housing costs and surgery costs as I will plan to leave my parents home in pursuit of my freedom

If you would be so kind, please please feel free to repost/share this campaign on any social media platform. I know that these are hard times for everyone, but if you could support and/or share this, I would graciously appreciate it. 


Thank you for taking the time to read my story. I hope you have a wonderful day. 


Sincerely,

Avery
