Story

Lily (name changed) is a non-binary person who is suffering from anxiety, depression and bipolar disorder. They have regular medicines and consultations with their psychiatrist and therapist. They have unresolved trauma from being sexually assaulted as a child by a close family friend who was a religious authority figure. Their family took no action and even forced them to spend time with their assaulter (every week) and they continue to take no action and sympathize with the assaulter as he is a religious authority figure. Their parents refuse to let them leave the house and their only option is to run away from their house. 

Their parents took them to a "Psychologist" who was also a priest. Their parents bullied them to go to this priest psychologist who told them very homophobic and sexist things and promised to make them "obedient" again.

Their parents threaten them whenever they try to or even ask to leave the house on their own that they are ruining the family's reputation and honour. They were able to find a queer affirmative therapist recently but their parents dismissed the therapist saying "how can someone who thinks this is right a therapist?". They need funds to pay for therapy sessions going forward.

Their mental and physical health has deteriorated to a point where they are super anxious about everything, having multiple panic attacks a day and have resorted to cutting themselves. I am worried about them. They are trying to find a job and self-sustain but it has been hard in an abusive environment. They have to move out to a place where their parents can't follow them, their parents have followed them in the past and it made things worse. They are hopeful about finding a job in two months after moving out.
They are an artist and plan to make some money by selling their art.

They can't survive without your help. They need money for
1. Moving out to a different state:
2. Initial costs for setting up a business to sell their art, equipment, printing and manufacturing charges (calendars, pins etc.):
3. Continuing therapy:

They are offering what they can to supporters, Calendars for contributions of 5000 and above, Pins for contributors of 10000 and above.
