This is my friend, Alex.
Alex is transgender, and is currently undergoing the transition from male to female. She started her Hormone Replacement Therapy last winter, and is on the road to eventually having sex reassignment surgery to complete her transition.
However, the surgery is a costly procedure. Alex has struggled with finding employment because unfortunately, the area where she lives is conservative and many employers are not open to hiring transgender individuals. She is already having a difficult time simply earning enough money for food, clothes and medical bills without proper support from her parents, let alone being able to save up for her surgery.
Please help to spread Alex’s message. Alex has started a donation campaign on gofundme.com to try to raise money for the procedure. Every penny counts, and even just spreading and reading her story is greatly appreciated. She is an incredibly brave, kindhearted and strong individual, and I couldn’t be more proud of her.
