Hi folks. I really hate to do this but im at a loss at this point.
In laymans terms: i cant afford to live. Please go to the link if you want a more extensive explanation.
I moved to toronto to escape the abuse i was experiencing at home and to acquire safety as a trans…
Aderonke’s family was killed and she was arrested, tortured, and sentenced to death in Nigeria – because she’s a lesbian. She fled to safety in the UK.
Now, they’re trying to send her back into danger. Aderonke, like dozens of other LGBT asylum-seekers, is stuck in a process that the UK government has already admitted to humiliating and abusing them. It doesn’t work or protect anyone.
But, if thousands of us speak out right now, we could get the Home Office to take the next step and halt the deportations. Will you sign the petition to Home Office Secretary Theresa May now?
Please sign the petition to stop her deportation! 70,792 people have already signed this petition. We’re almost at the goal of 75,000 signatures.
(ETA: Seems you can only sign from the UK; definitely share if you have followers there!)
HEY THE LINK SEEMS TO BE A WRONG ONE. To sign up the petition try this link instead: https://www.allout.org/en/actions/aderonke
Sunny is a trans girl from Suadi Arabia who is studying in Arizona on a student visa.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE DON’T SCROLL PAST THIS.
Scarleteen is a vital queer and trans positive sexual health resource. Their staff do an amazing job of creating really comprehensive and helpful articles on literally every sexual topic you can imagine. They also provide live chats, advice columns, moderated discussion forums, and SMS-based peer support. This site has helped me on countless occasions, and I refer at-risk queer and trans kids to this site every single day.
Scarleteen is invaluable.
And Scarleteen needs your help.
During their annual donation drive this year, the site was only able to raise $1,500. Only fifty people out of Scarleteen’s 350,000 unique monthly visitors contributed to the fundraising drive.
This means that unless Scarleteen sees a stable, sustained, 50% increase in donations, the site will essentially be forced to go dark on May 1. No more new content, no more advice columns, no more forums, no more live chat, no more SMS support.
This is devastating.
If Scarleteen goes dark, millions of young people, vulnerable queer and trans teens among them, will lose access to essential, fundamental sexual health resources. We cannot let this happen.
Please, please, please donate to Scarleteen. Consider making a recurring monthly contribution if you feel that this is within your means. Even $5 or $10 a month will go a long way to helping this very, very deserving organization.
And whether or not you’re able to donate at this time, please signal boost this and spread the word. Scarleteen does incredible, very necessary work, and they need our help.
uh Hi everyone!! i know this is kind of out of no where but this is my good friend Ashley. I love her so much and she’s such a fun,loving person, and she needs help. She’s been fighting aplastic anemia for over 2 years and she recently lost her hair due to chemotherapy, and she’s only 15. For those of you who don’t know, aplastic anemia is a condition in the bone marrow where its unable to make enough white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets. Its very similar to leukemia. It has caused her to miss a numerous amount of school, and she has had to undergo many surgeries and doctors appointments. In fact, she is unable to return to school for the rest of the year. she’s been gone since December.
Because of her condition, she can’t be out in the sun, take the stairs, and she gets very nauseous easily. If she has to be outside for a long time, she needs a wheelchair. At school I had to ride the elevator with her and make sure she was okay every so often.
Unfortunately, her family is unable to pay for the treatment she desperately needs. I don’t know if this will work, but I was hoping that if i posted this, some people on tumblr would help donate. The money would go towards a bone marrow transplant. It costs $10,000 and so far they have only made about $1,300.
Please im asking this as her friend and someone who cares about her. If you could just signal boost this or even donate a dollar it would mean so much to me and her family as well.
There’s only about a month left until this campaign closes so please help.
Thank you so much.
REBLOG THIS ! You can save Ashley’s life… I know we can do it ! It’s only $10,000… It’s nothing for tumblr ! WHERE ARE THE NOTES!
My girlfriend, Ellie, is in a bad situation and we need help. Recently she got into a bad financial situation due to her bipolar disorder and she ended up moving in with her dad since she couldn’t afford her rent. Her dad put her through a lot of emotional abuse as a child but he seemed to be a little better now so we thought this would be for the best. Today, however, her dad had an outburst and Ellie was so afraid she left. She is now staying in a hotel, which she cannot afford.
We live in Wisconsin, but because she was planning on moving at one point, Ellie actually has a couple of jobs lined up in San Francisco. However, she has no place to stay there. I am posting this to see if anybody at all could offer a safe place to stay for Ellie. She doesn’t need much, just a roof over her head and safety, as she is transgender.
If you think that you can help her out, please message me and we can talk. Otherwise if you could please signal boost this I would really appreciate that. Thank you.

The New York City Police Department is seeking the public’s assistance in locating the following person reported missing within the confines of the 24 Precinct. The details are as follows:
Missing: Lee, Jiwon 29 year old female 220 West 98 Street NY, NY
The missing was last seen at her residence on April 1, 2014 at approximately 2030 hours. She is described as being 5’2” tall, 120 lbs., with black hair and eyes.
A photo of the missing is attached and available at DCPI.
Anyone with information in regards to this missing person is asked to call Crime stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime stoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.
All calls are strictly confidential.
Our cat Spaghetti had been throwing up after every meal for around 24 hours. We took him to the vet only to discover that rather than having a minor issue like an inflamed stomach, he actually has a serious congenital problem that could kill him.
His lower intestine has wrapped around the sack containing his heart and gotten stuck there, causing him severe irritation. He’s had this since birth, but it’s taken us two years to discover it because we’ve never had him x-rayed before.
The surgical costs for getting this corrected were beyond our price range, but thanks to our friends, family, and fans we were able to raise the money to perform the surgery in less than TWO hours. It was a miracle. I’ll never forget it.
Sadly we still need to cover the cost for diagnosing Spaghetti with this problem, as well as the costs for hospitalizing and treating him overnight. This is a much smaller amount, but it will still be a huge dent in our bank account unless we can raise it via our GoFundMe.
If you can spare anything, please do donate at the Save Our Spaghetti GoFundMe page, as it will go towards giving Spaghetti the long and full life he deserves.
I’m praying he’ll make it through surgery okay. He’s one of the nicest pets I’ve ever had. He made me fall in love with cats, and I used to be adamant that I did not care for them. But he wakes me up every morning and talks to me while I’m working and even now I miss having him in my lap to snuggle with.
DO NOT SCROLL PASS. THIS IS YOUR DAUGHTER, YOUR SISTER, YOUR FRIEND. PLEASE HELP TO BRING #relisha #rudd BACK HOME SAFE AND SOUND.
Y’all, this case is like 3000% legit. It’s been all over the news in my area and the search for her has turned into a search for her body. The man who took her is also wanted for the murder of his own wife.
Relisha is the 3rd girl to go missing in the our area in the past month. She is thought to be with Kahlil Malik Tatum, a janitor at her school, who is thought to be driving either of the cars stated in the above flyer.
Please signal boost this, the DC Police may have started to give up hope, but there still may be a chance for Relisha Rudds.
