Help a Non-Binary Black Femme Pay Bills

Donation protected
Hi I’m Kahla The Griot and I’m a non-binary storyteller, historian, & creative looking to raise funds for my basic needs. I’m applying to jobs and interviewing, but since leaving my last job due to the trauma inflicted onto me (racism and transphobia), I have been experiencing financial insecurity that makes it hard for me to think past the present moment and see myself into the future. I also have chronic depression that makes it hard for me to trust leaving my home, paired with facing a world that’s been hostile towards me from birth. I create Tik-tok content, support my community, and deeply love the communities I belong to (in person and online).
And, due to a displacement in December (from a carbon monoxide leak that killed my neighbor) I have been struggling to keep up financially. My landlord is increasing rent but $150 after everything, and I’m emotionally and physically exhausted. I am reaching out to my community for support because I know I can’t internalize the oppression I face due to my intersecting identities and do it all by myself. I also seek to support those more marginalized than I and I need this support until I get a new job and can resume financial redistribution. Thank you all!
