so this is me, Phoenix, and my partner, Alastair. I’m a poly agender lesbian, and he’s my gender-questioning steady.
I’ve had to ask for a lot of help recently. up until a few months ago, I managed to squeeze thru on my own (below the poverty line my whole life, but I’ve been working 50+ hours a week since I was 15 on top of school) and then some really awful shit happened. I was raped twice less than a month after my best friend and lover was murdered, all while homeless.
since I was very young, I’ve been diagnosed with PTSD, depression, anxiety, and schizophrenia. with the recent shite of late, all of my mental illnesses have essentially hit a point where I am no longer able to work for the time being.
to sum up quickly, I’ve been accepted to university in Denton. I am staying at a place over an hour and a half away from the uni and need to get an apartment closer to school. my financial aid will pay for the tiny apartment I’m gonna get once I get my student loans, but before then, I need money to put down on our apartment. what money I did have have is almost gone and the person we are staying with needs more money to afford us staying here, which isn’t really an option anymore anyways. we won’t need too terribly much, but I do need it within the next 2-3 weeks. if you can donate, the button is on my blog in the description. if you can’t, signal boosting will help us too. thank you all for helping me during this shit. <3
REFUGE restrooms is now live on the web at http://www.refugerestrooms.org. It is viewable on any browser.
REFUGE seeks to provide safe bathroom access for transgender, intersex, and other gender nonconformist individuals. A few months back the valuable safe2pee database stopped working. We present Refuge as a replacement. Starting with the existing database of listings from Safe2Pee, refuge makes the database easily searchable and mappable to allow folks to find the nearest safe restroom.This is very much in its alpha stage and had a lot of growing to do. I started learning how to code not that long ago so I’m still learning how I can make the app better and better. The app is open source so please contribute to the project on github @http://www.github.com/tkwidmer/refugerestroomsstay tuned both here and on twitter @refugerestrooms.
country music, or as I like to call it, “farm emo”

Sorry to keep making donations posts, but with yr help this has been the first time in over a year that we’ve been somewhat stable with food and medication. unfortunately we’re constantly struggling and still trying to, well, stay alive. We were planning on selling some stuff but found out it got damaged and can’t really be sold and we were really depending on that money.
If you can send paypal donations to firstname.lastname@example.org, click here or on the button on my blog, we would really appreciate it. signal boosts are always appreciated. thanks SO MUCH for the help so far and for yr thoughts/prayers/positive energy, things have really been looking up!
