    Story

    Hello world!

    I created this page as a secret to surprise my transgender boyfriend, Isaac. However, I find it really hard to keep secrets from him and decided to share the page with him so he could be a part of this process.

    Isaac is amazing, kind, caring, supporting and who I am completely head over heels for. I want to do all I can to help him throughout his journey of transitioning so that’s why I have decided to set up this page.

    Currently, in the UK the waiting list to be referred to the gender clinic can take up to 13 months. Which means that it could be over two years until he actually gets put on testosterone and even longer for top surgery. The fastest way to transition is to go privately.
    We are not currently financially stable enough to pay for private treatment which means that every day he has to think about many different things like how to act, how to speak, what to wear just so he lives up to societies social construct of a 'man'.

    We are so grateful to any donation and we really appreciate anything given. Isaac is an illustration student and since finding out about the page, he had the idea that for those who would like something in return for their donation he is very happy to personally make you a small booklet and send it to you.

    Whatever is raised is brilliant and it is going towards a personal cause. This money would just be a start of our funds to go privately, or if not enough is raised it will be spent on binders and packers for him which will help just enough until he can get surgery.

    I really do love this man and would love your help so I can make him as happy as I can.

    Thank you!

      With only seven days to go we have nearly reached our Just Giving target! We want to thank everyone who has donated, this really means the world to us. Everyone has important things in their lives and this is one of ours. So thank you for helping us start this journey. We have been really lucky to have amazing support from you all for donating and sharing our page. Even much so that we have had reporters write about our story to raise awareness about the transgender community and help people going through the same situation. We love you all ❤❤

      We are over half way to our target because of everyone's support with only 50 days lefto on the donation page! I just want to thank everyone who has donated and shared the page, it really means so much to have your support and for you to all be a piece of Isaacs journey. This all leads a big step closer to being able to pay for surgery instead of waiting God knows how long on the waiting list. That's one step away from Isaac feeling dysphoria and not himself. Sending much love to you all 💕💕
