Pela's Gender Affirming Fund


Hey welcome, I'm Mupela or you can call me Pela (she/they).

After years of battling through depression, anxiety, and really not treating myself with proper care. I am at a place in my life where I want to start living authentically and allowing myself to win at life. I am proud to say that I identify as Non-binary.

However, I REALLY need your help starting my gender-affirming journey. For those that do not know what this means for me personally; this means me undergoing "Top Surgery" or in medical terms - a Bilateral Mastectomy (removal of both breasts).

I am sure this is not the first gender-affirming fundraiser you have come across and unfortunately will not be the last. Whilst I have the privilege of access to some free health care services via the NHS in the UK, this healthcare does not and never has adequately catered to LGBTQ+ POC, explicitly trans and non-binary people. Via the NHS will have to endure 4+ years of jumping through medical hoops to get a Gender Dysphoria Diagnosis and eventually Top Surgery. This timeline was before the COVID-19 Pandemic and regretfully has now increased.

I am seeking to go private and avoiding the NHS wait times for this next step to get to where I need to, physically and mentally. I am asking for your help in donating to my gender-affirming fund. The costs are incredibly expensive going the route of private care and when you factor in the surgery time when operating on larger chests, much like the size of my chest...the costs are huge!

That's where I desperately need your help in becoming unapologetically Mupela. I absolutely HATE asking for assistance so just making this step in asking for anyone's help is a huge leap for me (my partner has been pestering me to be brave). If you can donate, and I mean only if you really can, please spare whatever you can afford. No amount is too small, literally every bit counts. If you can’t donate at this time, please share via any social channels you use.

For all your support, I am forever grateful
