Top Surgery for Quinn

Hello beautiful people -

My name is Quinn and I am a transgender man.  It has been a long journey coming to this realization - years of confusion, anger, and sadness.  Imagine being told to identitify a certain way. For 25 years, I thought I was supposed to identitfy as someone who was feminine when I truly felt I was masculine in nature.  Imagine the internal turmoil that can cause.  It would leave anyone feeling aimless. I felt lost and confused. Over the past two years, I have allowed myself to accept my maculine identity as real and valid.  Overall, it has put me at ease.  I am a happier person knowing who I truly am.  I have taken steps that I know will lead down a road of excellence.  My very own pursuit of happiness.

Although I am much happier knowing that I am indeed a transgender man, there are still many challenges that lay in the way.  Dysphoria is ever present, especially in regards to my chest.  There is a perpetual feeling of unease that follows me where ever I go, in which I am reminded of every time some misgenders me or when I look in the mirror. My body does not match my gender identity, which takes a serious toll on both my mental and physical health. It is absolutely exhausting.

There was once a inkling of hope when I met with a sugeron but that hope has  since been removed.  My health insurance does not cover transgender services.  I started to appeal my denial of services, only to be told that there is a very slim chance of ever having this service covered.  It could take a year of paper work and persuative letters only be told that my coverage has been denied (again).  It's been very draining and I can't imagine life without going forward with this surgery.  The only thing stopping me is finances.

This is where you come in! I know that my goal is large but I am only asking for you to contribuate as much as you can. Anything helps!  And I greatly appreciative any donations made.  Anyone who donations will recieve a handmade gift crafted from yours truly.

Thank you very much for your generousity!
