My name is Siobhan and today is my “tranniversary”, which for me, means that 5 years ago today, I came out as trans. To celebrate, I am launching a healthcare fundraiser for myself!
I’m going to spend the next year trying to raise £20 000 to travel abroad for some gender affirming surgery.
I’ll be organising several fundraising projects including my embroidery Instagram @Sewsmutty, an online auction or two and on my birthday this year I’ll direct any friends and family who want to give me gifts to this page! I’ll be coming up with some other projects over the course of the year and posting about them here, and obviously I’d be super grateful for any donations.
I haven’t discussed in this post what procedures I’m raising funds for and I’m not going to. I’m also not going to detail my experiences of dysphoria here. For me, these are private things and I hope that folks will respect that choice.
