From the organizer: Gega and Sani are a pair of trans men from the Republic of Georgia, a country located between Russia and Turkey. They reached out to me on twitter for help running a GoFundMe, as there are no good crowdfunding sites operating in Georgia.
Although attitudes are changing, public acceptance of LGBT+ people in Georgia is still very low, and they face daily transphobia limiting their income as well as a lack of medical coverage for their needed top surgery. A doctor (endocrinologist and cosmetic surgeon) was recommended by a local LGBT+ organization; the men received a consultation and have begun HRT. Now they need our help to raise the funds for their lifesaving top surgery. Your donations of $50, $10, or even $5 will go a long way toward helping them achieve their goal!
From the beneficiary: We finally started medical transition. A doctor did the necessary tests and started taking prescribed hormones. Because of low and unstable income and the fact that transition services are not covered by insurance in our country, I had to rely on financial help from my friends.
Some photoshopped pictures the guys made to dream about what life with correct hormones would be like:
