I am Vinnu, a transgender men born and raised in Srikakulam. I moved to Hyderabad after my family tried to force me into a heterosexual marriage in 2009, working in a small hotel for an initial salary of Rs. 1100 since I had only been educated until class 6. I saved up and have been on Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) since 7 months and now I urgently need gender affirmation surgery as I am experiencing health problems because of the medication. I have no family financial support ever since I left home. I am planning my surgery at Ramaiah hospital for a budget of 1.5 lakh, I am also single without a caretaker.
