Can we get a signal boost for trans Latina Arianna Lint’s gender-affirming surgery? Her gofundme page has had 57 shares on facebook but not even half that many dollars in the month that she’s had her page.
Last time I made a post like this, I got a few scattered messages of support, but it got overwhelmed by reblogs of doubt and hate.
My name is Dana, and I need your help.
I am a nonbinary (androgynous gender fluid), bisexual person. They/them pronouns please.
I have been diagnosed with inattentive ADHD, GAD, depression, PTSD, Bipolar II, IBS, and gastritis.
I currently live under the roof of my emotionally, verbally and in the past, physically abusive parents. My parents know the various things I’ve been clinically diagnosed with and they themselves are neurodivergent too, but they’re very ableist. I’ve been threatened with homelessness, I’m made to pay bills even though (seen above) I have less than $200 to my name.
Pictured above are my balances, my appointment card for my next appointment with my psychiatrist and therapist, and my credit card balance. I’ve been paying the minimum payment for months now, and the interest rates are adding up. That balance is for gas and medications.
I’ll find out this week if I managed to get a good job with a close friend. But the money in my accounts right now is all I have left. I’ve scoured every corner of the house, every purse and wallet, every hiding spot. This is all that’s left.
Every donation, every penny helps me enormously. You can find me on PayPal at Qtbugdrs.
If you can’t donate, please please signal boost. Thank you very much for reading.
So here’s the thing.
I need oral surgery, badly. I have needed it for years, but in the past six months, the teeth have just gotten worse, and the pain is worse and more frequent.
The estimate for the cost of all services to be rendered is over
two thousand4600 dollars, even with the insurance plan I was able to purchase last year. We don’t have a lot of money, and things keep happening. My mom just had major surgery a month ago. She can’t even sleep in her bed yet, she’s having to sleep in a recliner, and that’s costing us, too.
Long story short, I need surgery badly and I could really use some help. I never wanted to make this post, but I’m pretty desperate.
If you can, please consider sparing a few dollars. I have a donation button on my blog, or you can donate here. Signal boosts are always appreciated.
UPDATE: You may have seen this post before, without the image above, saying that the cost was around two thousand dollars. I picked up a copy of the payment plan today, and I apparently mis-remembered. The actual out-of-pocket cost is $4638.
If everyone could please circulate this version of the post instead of the other one, I’d be very grateful. Sorry, this is completely on me.
This is a casting call for a paid role. Check below the “Read More” line for the actual casting call. Please help us spread the word!
Watching our own pilot, something became apparent. While our show has POC actors, all were of lighter complexion, and we hadn’t created space for actors with darker skin tones. That meant we weren’t creating a show that our whole audience could see themselves in. That didn’t sit right.
Addie is a new role that we’ve added to the show. They’re a genderqueer POC (of darker complexion). At the start of the show, Addie and Su work together. Su moves on, but their lives intersect every once in a while.
Addie has a scene early on where they’re still presenting as a man, but in subsequent scenes are living out as a genderqueer / non-binary femme. Their role in the first season is limited, but their story stretches into future seasons.
Our casting call is below the “Read More” line. Please help us spread the word! This is an important opportunity for QTPOC actors!
h/t to amomenttothink for retweeting this.
it’s like a modern au hair/les mis crossover
god somebody fucking take me to dallas already.
I keep thinking about this, not just because O holy god do I want to see Les Mis performed like this (although: O HOLY GOD DO I), but also that sign in the back there, “CLEAN WATER FOR ALL!” is literally something Americans are fighting for, right now, today, in Detroit. (It’s kind of striking how often, when you really look at something, the compassionate response is also genuinely the most practical one. Like, dang, you know what is probably not going to help a low-income family focus on catching up with their water bill? Depriving them of water!)
Anyway, the Detroit Water Brigade is doing awesome work, and they’ve set up an ingenuous “wedding registry” on Amazon where anyone on the internet can donate water and supplies to the many, many people affected by the shutoff. If you’ve got a few extra bucks and you can’t make it to Dallas but you still feel like sticking it to the man somehow, something to keep in mind!
THANK YOU FOR THE LINK.
I’ve been living with PTSD as the result of trauma that happened 3 years ago. I’ve spent a good portion of the past year just coming to terms with it and figuring out how to care for myself. One of the things that could give me back a lot of my independence is a service dog.
Hey, so this is my friend Mezzy. Fae is in a bit of a rough spot and has been trying to get a service dog for a pretty long time now. Basically fae needs 3k for the deposit and handler training. Right now fae has reached $200 of faer goal.
I’m gonna chip in if/when I can, but we’re gonna need some extra help to get there. We’ve got a few more days before we have to make the first payment. Please help us get there.
We are desperate. I need $550 ASAP or we’re going to lose our apartment. Tomorrow is Joshua’s 2nd birthday and we’re about to lose everything. Please, if anyone can help at all I will love you. If you give anything please donate to my paypal…
So my sister is really sick. Her liver is failing her - and fast. And from a condition no one is sure what to call yet because she has been too ill to get a biopsy done.
During her last 2 1/2 weeks stay she was given a feeding tube. She’s still young. She hasn’t even turned 30 yet.
She was put through hell - and for a while there…We weren’t sure she was going to make it.
But now she’s home and safe for the time being - though she is still far from recovery. The doctors said that if she isn’t a lot better by September 7th, 2014 then they absolutely will begin the process for a liver transplant.
Her hospital bills are astronomical - she is a young American adult over the age of 26 so…she has no health insurance. She has to go on Social Security now - something she desperately does not want to do since she loved her job as manager over at her movie theater but there is no way she will be going back to work for at the very least a year.
If you can find it in your hearts to pull out $5 from your wallet I urge you to visit the gofundme account a friend of hers set up:
We’re still a ways off - but please. take a look. on the page you can find her beautiful artwork - like this for example:
i beg of you all to click on that link. i beg of you all to reblog this post even if you don’t donate yourself.
she needs help right now, and every tiny itty bitty bit of help counts so much.
I, Shweta , am the FIRST girl from India’s red-light areas to be accepted to a US university! I have a full scholarship to the prestigious Bard College in New York but need funding for my room and board….
