help a non-binary person secure housing & car

on october 5th 2020 my parents and sister came to my apartment and confronted me about the evidence they found in my emails that i'm gay and trans. while i was still in a complete state of shock, and crying, they told me they wanted me to come home that night, and that they'd have all my stuff moved out of the apartment back to their house. on the 6th and 7th i had very real thoughts of self-harm, with the intent to get taken to the ER so I could explain my situation to a doctor and get help. the only reason i didn't end up hurting myself was that i was able to get an anxiety appointment at the local family medicine clinic. my mom waited in the car while i was in there telling the doctor whats going on, my specific plan to self harm by bashing my teeth into my bedroom door frame. they arranged a private ambulance service to transport me to an inpatient facility, but after completing their intake, i wasn't admitted, because my case wasn't "severe enough", like i wasn't in the kind of crisis that they dealt with.

@smellyclothes on twitter has been housing me since the 8th, but they can't afford to keep supporting me for much longer, especially without a steady flow of large donations.

while i've been here, i've communicated with my parents a few times, and they've still been adamant that being transgender is a phase, that it's not real, and that the internet & gender care organizations are pushing it on people. they also won't give me the laptop i got on oct 1, because they don't know where i am and they think i'll sell it. i know me complaining about that laptop sounds entitled since i got my previous laptop, but it's a different experience when i've been obsessing over that particular laptop since january, it's been my special interest. it's not the same when you're autistic and something so specific brings you comfort. i finally got it after 10 months of waiting, and i got to use it for exactly one week, and 2 of those days i was using it after being taken back to my parents house, the place where my mental health suffers the most.

i'm setting up this gofundme so i can afford my own transportation, my own groceries, and ideally my own apartment. small donations help, but please donate as much as you can. i want to get to a stable place so i can give back to other queer people facing similar situations, especially queer youth in toxic family conflicts like mine.

TLDR: i managed to escape my transphobic parents household, and now i need lots of money to afford basic necessities
if you can't donate on this gofundme, my cashapp is $dragonproject
