FACE SPAM!

Hey Tumblr, recently I’ve been going through a rough patch in my life and turned to alcohol to help me with my problems. As time has gone by, this has become more and more of an issue and I need to prove to myself that I do not need the drink.

As an incentive to help me with this, I want to help a Charity that has helped me, that being Mermaids UK. They are a charity that offers support to young people and their families. If it wasn’t for this group, no way would I be where I am now. 

So I am going to stop drinking to raise money for thus fantastic charity and I will present the total raised to the committee at the end of April on their annual residential.

The sponsor page is being held via a MyDonate and the link can be found here. All donations will go directly to Mermaids UK.

If you could please support me and Mermaids by donating to this page and/or signal boosting, I would be so incredibly grateful. 

Thank you!

Signal boost!

relaxing gender norms will make everyone’s life easier, but it won’t make it any less important for me to live as a woman.  <3

Anonymous asked : Hy. Can you tell me how much money are needed to start the transition mtf, I'm thinking about the first year...

lucycadence:

Well firstly, you don’t need any money to actually start your transition, it’s just starting to move in to your preferred gender. Even your deed poll name change can be done for free (in the UK anyway). Obviously if you plan on changing your wardrobe, there will be that to pay for. 

In terms of medical transition, the obvious answer would be to go with the NHS, which will be primarily free other than travel and physical medications (hormone pills are about £10 every other month and injection blockers are about £50 a month) but some people, such as if you’re in full time education don’t have to pay for these either.

The main problem with the NHS is how incredibly slow they are. If you want to get on to a medical transition without the year and a bit waiting list, you’d have to go private. I attend a private clinic in London called Gender Care

With them you would need to have two initial appointments, one with a Psychiatrist and the other with an Endocrinologist. These two appointments are around £200 each. You would then need to go to various follow up appointments every few months with the endocrinologist at about £95 each.

So in total for private you may be looking at about £700 to go for private treatment.

I’m sorry I can’t give any information about the cost in the United States but I hope this will help some of my British followers looking to transition.

Hey guys, this is an improvised STP device I just made from the handle of a milk jug, and it totally works! I don’t have much experience with STPs, but the first time I tried this I was able to aim into the toilet and not dribble, which I’ve never been able to do before. I’ve never heard of anyone making one like this before, but literally all it takes is two minutes, an empty milk jug, and a pair of scissors.

Please sign & share this!
Members of my school’s trans student organization have been working to change our health insurance to include transitional surgery and hormones. We’re really close to getting this approved, but members of the insurance committee are against this progressive change for moral reasons or because they think it is unnecessary. We need as many people as possible to sign and share to prove them wrong.
Trans inclusive health insurance is 100% necessary and can be life saving. Please help our university help our trans community. Thank you!

Forgot to mention: WE NEED THIS SIGNED BY MONDAY MORNING

reblogging this again.
SIGNAL BOOST! this is huge! if our school gets this, this could really impact the healthcare policies of other schools as well as insurance companies!

Reblogging again, I’ll post shameless noody judies if I need to for signatures and reblogs
