this week marked the alignment of two disparate but now eternally linked dates in my life. November 20th serves as the 6th-month point of my first year of sobriety & in Amerikkka is our "Trans Day of Remembrance /Resilience" or #TDOR.
but your Trans & GNC friends are always posting those statuses, always morning our kin, always asking for support in a world actively sanctioning our death. it's a lot. we have things to do. & money is always better than guilt & will keep us alive, delay any & all unusefully grief.
not to be so sobering....lol. but I'm really blessed by the network of people who have consistently put their money where they say their hearts are. i am blessed for a family who allows my process & practice to flourish. still i am in need & finding better ways to ask for it. i am doing the personal work to face this world head on & i need you help to fortify my work.
i'm just under halfway to my goal for my INVEST IN JAYY fundraiser & i am working on securing my housing in the next 10 days. your support is not only appreciated but urgent at this time as I am jumpstarting the next stage of my life.
today i'm asking you to challenge your community to care like you do. please share my fundraiser with a challenge to your community to show up! show up for a Black artist. show up for a Trans artist. show up for a femme artist. tell them why my work inspires you, especially if you can't give your words & actions are what motivates & secures my efforts.
again, i'm so grateful for all the support i've gotten thus far & i hope you can help me reach my goal today! read more: here
