TRANS + QUEER COUPLE FIRE RECOVERY FUNDRAISER
Hi y’all.
So, last Thursday, my really close friend Lee & his partner Nathanael lost their home to a fire. Nobody was hurt, but the fire has devastated them psychologically and destroyed everything, leaving them with only a literal handful of mementos left from a lifetime of fighting to have a home (and a truck).
Lee & Nathanael are both trans, queer, mentally ill, and now homeless. One of them had been on medical leave before the fire and was preparing to return to work. Much of what I’ve been doing for the past week has involved emergency visits to help take care of things emotionally, squeezing in times for quick reassurances and talks between shifts, and just generally doing what I can do to keep them going forward.  They’re strong people.
And they need help. Between finding a home, mounting medical and survival costs, replacing everything, and just generally to hold themselves together, they need as much help as they can.
I’m going to probably queue this up to repost a few times over the weekend, please if you feel comfortable supporting them at all, or reblogging to signal boost, I implore you to do so. They have community support here, but they’re still a long ways off from even coming close to where they were before, and need any support and care that can be spared.
If you wish to donate any specific materials rather than financial contributions, please contact me, at some point we’re trying to get a list up for specific items lost, but without a consistent place to keep them (my living room has been acting as a miniature storage unit for a few days) the bigger issue for them is just simply affording recovery.
Thank you.

Day 9

Today at the gym was probably one of the best yet. Last week for the back and biceps workout, it was only day 2. This week, I felt so much stronger! Last Tuesday I couldn’t even finish the last 3 sets. I literally had dead arm. I couldn’t lift a thing. Today, not only did I do the entire last 3 sets, I went over to the mat area and did 200 sit ups. 
I am so excited that I am feeling myself getting stronger. I can’t even begin to imagine what it’s going to be like at the end of 12 weeks if this is what I feel like after 1! I probably sound pathetic, but I really do feel great. 
Dinner tonight was broccoli with shrimp. DELICIOUS!
