My name is Aarav Singh . I’m 24 years old, a native of New Delhi, a proud transman and Advocacy officer in Transcend project The Humsafar trust.
I lives on rent. My father passed away in 2015. So in a nutshell I don't have support from family. I began transitioning through hormone treatments 5 year ago, and undergone top surgery in 2017. I have always lived with Gender Dysphoria and have always wanted to be recognized as male. I have my Gender Identity Dysphoria certificates and I am on hormones necessary for surgery, but due to my financial condition, I can't really afford my "bottom surgery". I am a person living alone with my wife and there is no family support. somehow I manage the expenses of monthly medicines, injections and tests.
With the beard, accessing public places is getting difficult for me, and it's a daily struggle now, to complete the process of transitioning, I now have to undertake two expensive surgeries - hysterectomy and phalloplasty.
There are 4 stages in the bottom surgery and the gap between each surgery should be atleast 3 months. So, I am planning to have my first stage of bottom surgery in December 2021. The estimate cost of first stage is approx. 4 lakhs rupees. So I request you all to please help me as much as you can. Your single penny will help me to make my life easy.
I remember as a teenager, lying in my bed at night praying that I would wake up the next day and be a boy, to be my authentic self, and to just have my family be proud of me. With every penny thrown, with every birthday candle blown out, my wish was always the same.
But this all can happen with your support and love.
For every trans person, it feels a little different. For me, it felt like constant homesickness. Not a homesickness in my own body, but homesickness in my own life. It was an unwavering, unyielding ache in the pit of my stomach that only went away when I began to embrace my true self. When I could be seen as me.
Here, I am asking for your HELP to make it a more authentic self.
It's you, Yes YOU all, my chosen family, I need support, love, and help to go through this.
