shoaling_souls: Two hands sticking out above the waves (drowning)
[personal profile] shoaling_souls
Hi everyone, I hope this post is allowed. I checked the rules in the profile and didn't see anything about whether this was okay or not, but if it's not okay let me know and I will delete it.

I identify as a genderqueer lesbian, and my future wife is mtf. We've been in a ldr for four years now and she's a really good person and we love each other a lot and I want to spend the rest of my life with her. She's a software developer, but she was laid off a few years back and since then we've been working on building a website together that is finally almost done and ready to launch in a month or two which will be great because we'll start having an income again. We've got some opportunities for start up funds that'll be coming through possibly as soon as January or February, so if we can get to that point, we'll be okay.

But she was just a little bit late for rent recently and despite having been a tennant there for 13 years and always being on time before, they sent her an eviction notice. If she can't pay up, she'll be evicted a week before Christmas, and then we'll both end up homeless, far away from each other.

She's set up a gofundme thing, and I'm boosting the signal to try to keep this from happening. She is willing to either pay you back with interest or give you credit towards a paid account on our site once it's launched, whichever you prefer. She gives more information at the link about how she got to where she is right now, which you should read to make your own decision about whether to help. She is a survivor of a transmisogynistic hate crime, which she mentions in the post without going into graphic detail and it's trigger warned but I just wanted to give you a heads up if that will be triggery for you maybe skip that part. It's about halfway down the page or so. The PTSD stemming from that incident is a large factor in the bind she's in right now.

Anyway, please help if you can, either by donating or signal boosting. We'd really appreciate it.
