Story

It's not easy for me to ask for help, but I'm told that that's what community and chosen family is there for. So, time for vulnerability.

Hi, I am Aditya, 23 and as most of you know I am trans. This means I identify as male though my body doesn't quite match up to my brain.

It's hurting me inside but I can't express because I belong to a very conservative family. I've been dreaming of having a flat chest since I went through puberty at 12 years old. I learnt myself about top surgery for the first time when I was 19. I've known since then that I desperately want it for myself.
According to newindiaexpress.com (as I have not started my process yet) “the cost of undergoing sex reassignment surgeries (SRS) at private hospitals or clinics can range for a female to male (FTM) is anywhere between Rs 4 to Rs 8 lakh. While the costly surgery is the final step in the transition process, the medication and therapy are added expenses. A year of therapy with a psychologist is compulsory before undergoing physical transition. This includes two to four sessions a month which can cost Rs 1,000 to Rs 1,500 per session, bringing the total cost to Rs 48,000 to Rs 72,000.” At this point I just want to start my transition as soon as possible. If I reach the minimum goal ( which is 150000) I will increase the goal or start a part 2 of this. Everything depends on you all. 

I don't have enough financial support to take this huge step (surgery). I can't explain to you how every second I am struggling with dysphoria. I can't find a way other than transition.
This surgery has been going to give me a new life. Very soon the day will come I will win over the dysphoria and live my life the way I want.

I request all of you, please Donate and Support as much as you can.

Thank you.
~Aditya.
