Story

Hi, I am Siddharth Gope. I am 23 years old. I am a Transgender Man. Since childhood, I have been facing gender dysphoria. Means my body and my soul can not find a match so they became uncooperative.
The changes I have wanted in my body I wasn't getting those. It's hurting me inside but I can't express cause at that time "Transgender" this word used to symbolize only a particular part of it. People used to know about Transgender as Intersex people. But when I grew up I got to know my identity and got all those answers I was searching for.
I come from a very conservative family. As a result, I have been going through a lot of discrimination since childhood for my dressing style and not to behave as so-called feminine. And when I came out to my parents as Trans they rejected my identity by saying "I have a mental disorder", they want me to consult a psychiatrist to change my mind. I tried and tried but they were not at ready to accept me as their son. They came up to me that, they will find a guy for me to marry, this would be the perfect solution. I refuse all those proposals and started a new life by own.
I was working in a start-up company but due to this COVID situation, they have paused my salary. And I lost the job. I had Lil bit of savings before by that I have started my HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy). Now I don't have any sort of savings or enough financial support for surgery.
I have been on Hormone Replacement Therapy since April 2021. Very soon I am planning to go for Mastectomy (top surgery) and Hysterectomy (uterus removal surgery).
But I don't have enough financial support to take this huge step (surgery). I can't explain to you how every second I struggling with dysphoria cause still I haven't come out from this wrong body I can't find a way other than transition.
This surgery has been going to give me a new life, I was eagerly waiting for. It's been a dream for me since childhood. 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.
