Odete's SRS Fund

Hey everyone! <3

My name is Odete, I'm a Portuguese trans woman based in Lisbon. I've been working as an artist for some years now, with a focus on music and performance art. I've been transitioning for 4 years and, after much thought, I decided that it is time to try and live a better life, without the anxiety of dysphoria. For that, I decided that surgeries were the best option and I've been working hard to save money. However, and as much as I work, I still can't get enough because I have to pay for the expenses of everyday life, like rent, food, etc. 

This surgery are urgent in the sense that they protect me from violence and humiliation. Portugal is not the best country, nor the safest, for someone like me. And, as expected, health care does not cover this.

My body is my work, my temple and my tool and, as an artist and performer, feeling displaced from my own sense of my body is a trauma that needs time to heal and that healing can take a life time. It is to help that healing process, that connection, that I'm asking for your help!

I would love to feel myself, my body, my dreams and desires as much as you and therefore I took this decision. I would like to feel safe walking around, with strength to be seen and heard and felt, to be loved and love in return.
