Spring Fundraiser, Last Day

Written by SK Ashby

I know it's not the best of times right now, but it is that time of year and I need your help.

Your donations will help me cover basic costs of living like food and clothing and I cannot do this without your continued supported. I understand that many of you may have lost your jobs or income because of the novel coronavirus pandemic. Every donation, even if it's a small one, will help me a great deal. And if you're unable to donate, thanks for sticking around even if most of the headlines are bad these days.

Thank you in advance.

Now, those of you who follow me on Twitter may already know this, but last fall I began transitioning from male to female. My closest friends have known for a long time, but I did not come out publicly until Christmas. Many things happened to me after I lost my mother in early 2019, and one of those things was the realization that I am not who I thought I was. Although, to be honest, that almost feels like a misnomer because I was not really a whole person before and now I can be. I can finally be me.

I still have a very long way to go in transition (it's a mutli-year process) but it's literally the best thing that has ever happened to me in my entire life and I'm now in the best physical and mental shape of my life.

I do not currently intend to change my first name, Jordan, because it's already gender neutral -- but I will be changing my middle name. It will be JK at some point soon, not JM.
