Going from renting a room to actually renting an apartment or house here in Philadelphia will cost me significantly more than it cost to move in my current residence and I can't do it before June 15th on my own, not even with my pay. I am a realist. I need to pay the deposit, first month and last month's rent at $950 each, have the utilities turned on before moving in and pay for moving. I don't ask for help, but even I am putting my pride to the side and boldly claiming I can't do this on my own. This thing with my landlord turned really ugly when I felt I was being discriminated against and knowing that she came and removed everything that I have taken care of for the last seven months in the residence that belonged to her only shows me how much of an ally she really is to the transgender community.
I have made live videos on social media and chronicled the events as they unfolded. Some who see this will know that I am telling the truth and the need to vacate the premises is urgent. It cannot wait. I am tired and want to focus on my work in the community that I love, support both financially and physically and put my body on the line for everyday of my existence.
