Sophie's surgery fund

Hi!

My name is Sophie, I am a trans activist, author, cartoonist and part-time student (*update* I dropped-out of school :O to make comics :O my mom still doesn't get it).

Activism and cartoons take most of my free time, and both are volunteer work. I feel it is important that I keep on doing it, as it is what gives me the strength to get up each morning.

In the past year, I tried to make a living out of it, by selling some books, giving talks and setting up a Patreon account for my art.

But as I became very public about my experience and became the target of a lot of online violence and cyberbullying, I felt that I should do something that would ease the pain I feel on a daily basis.

It is something that, I believe, would make me a better advocate, a better activist, a better person overall. I strongly feel that my work, which reaches a pretty large audience, could benefit from it.

As I managed to get the money to have psychological support (thank you so much!), I am now trying to raise the money for a surgery that I've been needing for many years.

There won't be any reward here other than my everlasting gratitude.

Thanks for yor support. <3 <3

Hey y'all,
I'm so moved by your kindness <3 some comments you left brought me to tears. I really hope to make the best of it. I never thought I would meet the goal so fast! There was another surgery that I was planning on getting after the first one - I thought it would take years before having both, but you make it realistic for me to have both next year. I'll never thank you enough <3

Hi there! Thanks to everyone who donated, that really means a lot to me <3 I just lowered the goal since I managed to save 5k for that in the past few months (don't ask me how, that's the amount of my yearly income for most of my adult life). Now to the last stretch!

Thank you for all the wonderful comics and all the work you do for the lgbt+ community. I will never forget meeting you in person even if it was only once. I hope things continue to go well for you. You are a lovely person Sophie. :)

I saw that she used all the money to go to Europe. Using my 14 year old cousin because you're too poor is awful. Karma will get retributed to you.

Sophie, thank you for everything you do, you have given me so many tools to talk about this stuff with my family, and provided comfort and solace on the days when dysphoria is kicking my ass, I am so proud of you. Trans family :) good luck!
