Help Nemo become Nemo - Name Change

$60 of $500 goal

Raised by 2 people in 15 months
My name is Nemo and with your help, it can and will be. I need your help because it’s one of the first steps for me in transitioning into who I really am.

A Guardian article reported a study published in pediatrics.aappublications.org that “transgender children who are allowed to present their gender identity and change their names have good mental health outcomes, and hailed as “crucially important”.

The study, published in the March issue of the journal Pediatrics, shows the positive impact family support can have on the lives of transgender children, a group long hidden from public view.

Researchers found normal levels of depression and only slightly elevated anxiety levels in transgender children who were supported by their families.

Such support included the use of pronouns that matched the child’s gender identity, calling them by the name of their choosing and, often, and allowing them to change their hairstyle and clothing to reflect their identity. Such children are also known as “socially transitioned” children.” 

By helping me, you will help my emotional and mental health in the long journey of my transition into the person I have always been. It would be helpful to start at the state level to get a name change before updating my passport and other documents to reflect who I am as a person, and not the person everyone else sees at a glance. Excess costs will go to support my local transgender community.
