Sophie's surgery fund
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
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
I'm very sorry I could not afford to donate to help you in this process. I am however very happy that you reached your goal. 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.
