My name is Brandon, and I am a 20-year-old guy.
You see, I’m transgender, specifically FTM (female to male).
I’ve determined that, in order for me to succeed in the way I know I am capable of doing, having these lumps on my chest – these breasts – removed is something that needs to happen as soon as possible. I’m terrified of going back to school and having my discomfort and dysphoria screw with me again to the point where I lose my last chance. School has always been very important to me, so losing that would absolutely crush me.
I don’t get on Tumblr a lot anymore, but I saw this on my friend Brandon’s facebook page and I had to share. This is an excerpt from his fundraiser page that I felt was important to share with you guys, though he gives a more full account on his page. See, I knew Brandon in highschool and I can tell you now that he seems the happiest I’ve probably ever seen him considering I saw him almost every day for three years.
For most of us, being who we are as easy as cutting our hair the way we want or wearing the clothes we want. Maybe you express yourself through tattoos or blue hair streaks, but it’s not that easy for him. I’d like to see him be able to be happy in his body. I can’t really help financially, but I thought I’d share this. The more exposure it gets, the more help he can get.
Thanks to everyone who read this. <3 I hope, with help, he’ll be able to become who he always should have been.
