My name is Mia and i'm a black gay person who has been living in the same household with my family for years. due to recent events my situation has become increasingly harder for me.
As a black person living with my white family there's always been a divide in our beliefs pertaining to race and politics, which i've been vocal about since a young age. Given recent events surrounding racism, a lot of conversations in my household were unavoidable. not only are my family members trump supporters they hold many other racist beliefs and it's taking a serious toll on my mental health.
Yesterday I got into an argument with my mother and grandmother in which they gaslighted my siblings and i, said racial slurs, and defended their racist friends. and to make a long story short they want me to leave and i can't stay in that environment any longer if i want to lead a happy healthy life.
I'm currently unemployed and given the current situation in the world with the pandemic, finding employment has become even harder. This money would be saved to cover first and lasts months rent and groceries until i'm able to find employment.
I'd appreciate anything you're able to give especially at a time like this and if you're unable to donate it would mean just as much to me if you are able to share this page so it can reach more people.
