Help Shrek 666 Gender Affirming Surgery

Hey everyone, I’m reaching out. I struggle in asking for help or money but I’m left in a situation where I don’t have another option.

For those who don’t know me I’m Dæmon or Sorcha Clelland I’m a transmasculine Artist based between Glasgow & Berlin.

I never anticipated doing a crowd funder, I’ve worked in queer nightlife for years performing under the name SHREK 666. My plan was to raise the money for surgery by throwing a few big parties but not only is that no longer possible - I’ve also lost my job(s). This is why I need help.
In 2020 I started Hormone Replacement Therapy and its been the best thing I’ve done myself. I was able to fund the initial Psychiatrist and Drs appointments and medication myself at a private clinic in Scotland from income made through work spending thousands already, I had no option but to go private.
Mid 2016 I registered with SandyFord the NHS Gender Identity Clinic in Glasgow seeking medical transition on the NHS. Almost 2 years after registering I emailed to check my place in the queue and they had  lost me on the system forcing me to re-register. This set me back to square one losing 2 years wait time.

Now in early 2021 I’m still years away from a first appointment on the NHS for them to take over my hormones and will be multiple years, we’re talking 3/4 or more on the wait list for surgery. Covid has extended the already harmfully long wait times.
I wear and have worn a binder to hide my chest everyday for what feels like forever.
I’m not comfortable going anywhere or seeing anyone without it, wearing them up to 16 hours day I think the longest was 36 hours after berghain (lol).
This causes intense back and muscle pain. I’m in pain everyday and aside from the pain it’s just depressing. I’m not comfortable in my body, getting dressed everyday is stressful.
I’ve chosen a surgeon for work on my torso, had an initial consultation and received quotes back. The surgery alone is £14820.00, that number is without travel to London from Glasgow and accommodation in London for 2 weeks post-op which is essential for recovery.
it’s not just a straight forward top surgery - that’s why the quote’s so high.

Anything you can contribute no matter the number I’m so grateful. I know times are supper hard right now for a lot of people, if you can’t afford to donate please share and alternatively if anyone wants to give me a job I’m posting some links to my work below. I'm doing everything in my power to make it happen this year. This surgery would alleviate the dysphoria I feel on a daily basis and would be completely life changing.
Thanks for reading.

With love,

Dæmon Sorcha, SHREK 666 X
