Story

Hi, My name is Zac and I'm a Female to Male transgender man of colour. I can't afford top surgery and i know i cant wait however many years it will take via the NHS. I grew up in a traditional household and have no support for my transition other than saving up myself, which is tricky whilst being a student. I just want to be able to leave the house without having to put on a binder and cause my chest discomfort but i also absolutely cannot leave the house with my chest not being as flat as possible. I'm mostly recognised as a male but on occasion am still misgendered; every time rocks me to my core and reminds me i am "incomplete". I just want to be able to look in the mirror rather than actively avoid it

Also swimming, i want to go swimming so badly but i know it would be a horrifically dysphoric experience for me until I've had surgery.

Please give what you can.

    I've been given a date for early 2021, Thankfully I have savings to start the process and there are finance options but again your donations to this page make a huge huge difference. Thank you so so much! Please share if you can.

    I’ve got a top surgery consultation scheduled for early September and thanks to all of you, there’s now enough raised to cover the deposit and the consultation fee. I’ll hopefully be getting it on finance so would appreciate your continued support. Love you all!

    It's been over six months now and I've got consultations scheduled so that when I have the funds, I can get top surgery right away. Of course with the current lockdown restrictions it is unclear when this might be even if I have the funds but hopefully soon now and it's good to know that physically I'm able to have top surgery now.

Hi, my name is Zac and I am a trans man. I'm struggling with dysphoria a lot and NHS waiting times are getting me down. I'm attempting to save up to transition privately, this means I need funds to set up and receive testosterone and later down the line, top surgery. Thank You.
