Jem’s Gender Affirmation Fund

Hello hello my names Jem! I’m a transgender person whose recently quit my job due to a transphobic environment full of hurtful comments and threats. Along with that, I’m a full time college student whose education as well as transition process has been my financial responsibility. Around the age of 4-5 years old I explained to my neighbor I wanted to be a woman. Since then it’s been a journey of finding myself step by step of the way, and it’s been quite the rebellion. I’ve been misunderstood and misrepresented most of my life; censorship of who I am has made me realize I want more than ever to be who I feel like I am inside. I’ve been facing unemployment and financial issues even before the pandemic, as transgender people face a higher rate of workplace and healthcare discrimination. I realize there are many people who are in more need than I am, but I’d appreciate the consideration of donating or even sharing this fund to help keep myself afloat and affirm my gender expression. These affirmations include starting hormone therapy, gender affirming surgeries, laser hair removal, changing my name legally and the ability to keep up with paying my bills until I find a stable job. Thank you a million. - Jem ✨
