Louie's Top Surgery Fund!

Hey, my name's Louie and I'm a 26 year-old trans babe. 

If you don't have the time, here's the short version: I'm trying to raise funds for a future double incision top surgery to give me the chest of a typical male so I can walk through this world suffering a little less. (A lot less.)

Longer version: 

For as long as I could remember I have always felt, at best, uncomfortable in my body and, at worst, horrifically disconnected from it and the way others perceived me. I'm pleased to say that since coming out as trans I have seen and felt a significant change in my mental state and behaviors. And I find that as afraid as I am of the world, I am no longer warring with myself. (Honestly, I'm feeling some tears coming on as I read that sentence out loud. The bittersweet kind. The mourning, healing, relieved kind.)

But this is only the beginning.

This is where you come in! If you are able, the smallest donation and/or a quick share of my campaign to your friends/family/coworkers would make a difference. Please help me live my best life. Someday, when I am more financially sound, I will do for others what you have done for me.

Thank you so, so much.
