I have this friend, fellow activist, and general person-I-admire named Kevyn. Ze’s got a blog about gender variance, and ze also helps run The Circle, an international resource for trans folks, mostly focused on getting people binders. Ze also runs Trans Action with me, Sarah Lawrence College’s student trans activist organization.
And ze’s funny and smart and charming and like, astonishingly strong, because the world has responded to Kevyn being a generally awesome individual by making life pretty fucking tough for hir. Ze’s an independent student at a very expensive college, which means money is tight, and ze’s trans, and ze needs to get top surgery, which is very expensive.
To help make that happen, ze’s using a website called ChipIn–it’s basically a way for people to send money to others who are in a tight spot. I’d really appreciate it, and so would ze, if you’d help hir out by sending along some money. Anything extra you have would be a huge help. I think of this as a way for us to amelioriate temporarily a the problematic lack of health care infrastructure for trans people.
This is hir ChipIn link! You should click it!
Ze also has very good V-lines. You know, those sexy lines people sometimes have on their hips? Kevyn has those. They are super hot.
ETA: If your donation isn’t showing up on Kevyn’s ChipIn, it doesn’t mean it didn’t get through! Just that it’s taking a while to process.
