Diana and I have been a couple for the best 4 years of my life. I traveled all the way to Brisbane from the USA to see her, and now we want to make it all official.
We originally met online in 2012 and instantly became best friends. In two years, our friendship blossomed into a long distance relationship, and in September 2015 we met in person for the first time. Diana and I have decided to include pictures from before her transition to take you through our journey. This is us minutes after we first met, right outside the airport.
It was exciting and overwhelming to finally meet up after a year of messaging, calling, and sending each other packages. We were able to share many wonderful memories in Brisbane, including our first Halloween, Christmas, and Valentine's Day together.
But in February 2016 it was time for me to return to Texas. We wouldn't be able to see each other for another year, until she came the the states. It was a much shorter visit, but we were able to share many more memories, including another Valentine's Day. When she went back home, we decided to exclusively focus on our respective futures so that, when we next met, we wouldn't have to say goodbye.
Early this year, Diana came out to me as transgender shortly before she came out to the rest of the world. We decided that current circumstance entreated an exception to our previous promise - I immediately made it my goal to see her again ASAP, and through the generosity of her family, I was able to return to Australia once more. Initially the plan was to aid her through the early rough patch of her transition, but I soon realized how deeply in love I had fallen, and how I couldn't bear to be away from her again. I popped the question on August 15th.
Our goal is to be married by April 15th! And we are more than happy to have a small, simple ceremony.
The amount we are seeking to raise will all be going towards my application for a visa which will allow me to live with Diana indefinitely. This is a Partner visa (Temporary) Subclass 820, and this is a bridging visa of $7,160 which will lead to the Partner Visa (Permanent) Subclass 801.
