Fundraising for Freedom

Hello Beautiful People,

I know it’s been a long time since I’ve posted up an ask for a fundraising campaign yet here I am again. To be honest, this is still a difficult process for me to ask for help but I’m learning I already have the no, so I gotta fight for the yes and if I want help, I have to speak and ask for support. The urgency of launching this campaign is very real because as you’ll find out in the description of the fundraiser - my surgery date is on May 30th and I need all my funds by May 16th. That sounds really soon, I know, and trust me it’s still hitting me but I earnestly need your help to make my surgery happen. If you can donate (and it not break your budget or pocket), please do. If you can share this link (and not have detrimental repercussions for doing so), please do. Helping hands and giving hearts are always appreciated. Also, if you’re in the area and you see me, please give me a hug (that helps sooo much you have no idea). Below I have provided the link to the fundraiser and I just hope that ya’ll help me get there 

With Love & Affirmation,
Myke

Don’t fool yourself. English isn’t inherently superior, or easier to learn, or more sonically pleasing. Its international usage comes from forceful assimilation and legacy of colonialistic injection. It isn’t a deed that one should take pride in.

Urgent security update

support:

Bad news: A major vulnerability has been disclosed for the technology that powers encryption across the majority of the internet. That includes Tumblr. Our team took immediate action to fix the issue, but you should still take some time to change your password, not only here but on any other sites you visit. 

You should also strongly consider enabling two-factor authentication. It’ll go a long way to ensure that no one besides you can access your account. Thanks, and take care.

As I said before, I’m gonna explain what #tboysrock means and how special this hat is to me and what I do. I got this hat at the Philly Trans Health Convention #pth13 (Literally the first time I have ever seen soooo many Trans people in one space. It was beautiful.) Anyway, I bought this hat from @ashleylovekay who originally made a line of hats and tees for #tgirlsrock speaking to the awesomeness of transwomen. But what she decided to do was show us tboys some love too *-* Never saw anything like it so I had to have it! I believe getting this hat was the real, hardcore beginning of my want to do affirmation work within Trans communities. This hat, every time I wear it, see it, and internalize the message, I feel empowered! The #tboysrock hat was my alter item when I went to Oakland, California for the Brown Boi Project #BBP10 and it’s just been a real reminder that Trans people, especially Trans men, exist and we are alive and kicking ass and doing awesome, transformational shit! It’s been a growing experience and I’m so happy I get to carry this hat with me along the way. Thanks Ashley sooooo much! As for the tfolk, keep rocking it y’all! #chestchallenge #challengebychoice

(Trans)parency. My Resistance against Invisibility. I am only as confined as I want to be and I’ll keep working to no longer let confinement be the basis of my story. But for now this is what you’ll get to see and the vulnerability makes me quiver a bit yet I personally can’t act like we tboys don’t exist #tboysrock #chestchallenge #challengebychoice

I haven’t done a #chestchallenge in a while but through some inspiration from bro @chucksandties and Christian, with his full pre-op chest reveal, I decided to challenge myself again and document. I have not reached the point where I’m comfortable revealing my chest pre-op (nor may I ever) but this is even a big step for me to be shirtless on camera. Definitely a #challengebychoice moment. But anyway yea. This is the first of three pictures. Will elaborate more on #tboysrock and what this snapback means to me in the last picture.
