Hi, my names Kavindu (commonly referred to as Kavi) I’m a 23 year old transman. Currently 14 months on testosterone. A few weeks ago one of my closest friends was kind/thoughtful/amazing enough to start a fundraiser page for my top surgery. Since they started the page it has raised nearly $3,000. I would have never thought that I could get even this close. The surgery itself is $5,200, hospital fees are $1300, and then the cost to travel and stay in Florida for a week (for post op check ups) is an additional $1,000 or so. Fortunately, I currently have 3 jobs and have been obsessively saving whatever doesn’t go to rent, food, etc. I am only $2,775 away! If you are able to donate or even just boost the fundraiser link. I would appreciate it more than words could ever express.
Only a few days to go on their Kickstarter campaign!"Passing Ellenville" is a documentary film project that explores the lives of two transgender young people, James and Ashlee, living in Ellenville, New York, which is described by the filmmakers as "a small, economically-depressed town 90 miles north of New York City that time has passed by."
I found the angle of their film compelling:
[Filmmaker:] I think this also goes back to that inspiration question, where what I’ve witnessed in mainstream media with transgender youth has been very positive. On March 18 The New Yorker had an article about a female-to-male trans high school student whose parents were helping with the hormones and getting him to transition. Katie Couric had a showwith lots of transgender kids and The Trevor Project [highlights] kids whose parents are helping them transition with hormones and things like that. Whereas the kids that we’ve met — and I think you know that this started originally as a documentary photography project of mine before Sam and I met — they are living the exact opposite. These are kids that were kicked out of their homes or ran away from their homes, ended up on food stamps and Medicaid and they have no one helping them. I feel like they’re very disenfranchised and not what we see in the media and we’re giving them a voice.

Oh, hey. Since J.K. Rowling is writing it…
Keep Pride political, not profitable.

Something to think about, regarding all those big organisations getting into Pink Dot.
Perspective of a bi girl
Remember when you were growing up and had your first crush on someone of the same sex? Remember how shocked/scared you were when you realise you were different from everyone else? Well, imagine the confusion when you realise you crush on both the boys and the girls.
