Gender Identity Dysphoria (GID) - a term barely a few have even heard of, let alone know and understand. It is a condition where a person feels intense discomfort with his/her biological body and assigned gender. My friend has been living with this condition for three decades now, and feels caged in the body she was born in.
After years of battling social stigma, isolation, ill-treatment, anxiety, and depression, she has finally decided to get rid of the cage and become the man she always knew she was. All of this also meant years of extremely uncomfortable and unhealthy chest binding, cross-dressing and physical discomfort along with the mental and emotional trauma that GID had led her into. Society around hasn't been the most supportive of her dysphoria and resultant lifestyle. Among other things, this has led her to quit two consecutive jobs, face financial distress and consequent economic and emotional instability.
It has been a never-ending loop for years. While she finally began her Gender Reassignment Therapy this month with the hormone injections, she will also undergo her mastectomy in a couple of months. This is a humble request for all you well-meaning individuals to contribute to it in ways that you deem right. She can't wait to live a life where this story can be re-written with a 'he' in it.
Many thanks in advance.
In the next 30 days, we need Rs.200,000.00 more for Surgery and for further treatment. Please come forward to support my cause. Any contribution will be of immense help. Do contribute and share this campaign link with your friends and family.
