My name is Jules Tatham, I am a 25 year old, biracial, queer, trans-masculine young adult living in Los Angeles. I am orginally born and rasied in Columbia, South Carolina and I lived in Charleston, South Carolina from 2010-2016.
In July of 2016, I began the mind opening, new, raw process of acknowledging and living with my newly realized gender complexity and identity. Between August to December of 2016, I had immense, intense, transformative changes in my life. I changed my name, gender pronouns, and underwent traumatic events within my interpersonal relationships with community, family and friends. Finally I decided to transition out of Charleston, in the best interest of my health and safety. During that time I sought out community support and healthcare services for transgender folks in my position. My journey ultimately lead me to Los Angeles, California in December of 2016, where I currently live with my wonderful partner.
At this time I am seeking financial support as soon as possible for top surgery. I am looking to schedule the surgery for either October or November.
My insurance covers a fairly large percentage of the cost. However, I need $1800 to cover the rest of the cost, plus additional support to cover after care expenses, as well the percentage that gofundme collects.
I am at a critical and pivotal point on my journey, this surgery is a life changing event and will be highly affriming to my gender identity and how I align myself to my body.
Please, I am asking for anything that you can give. Anything helps. Your donations will be beyond appericated and are going towards futhering my relationship with my body and affriming my gender identity.
Thank you so much!
