The Story

Hello everyone,

My name is Kai Parker and I'm fundraising to help with my out of pocket costs for my phalloplasty a.k.a "bottom surgery" (medical costs, travel expenses, etc.).

Here's a little about me: I'm a 21 year old Afro-Cuban trans guy, and I live in Ohio. I started testosterone November 17, 2015, I had my top surgery August 18, 2016, and I had my hysterectomy September 27, 2017.

The tentative date for my first procedure (stage 1) is June 18, 2018 with Dr. Chen & his team in California. I have to stay there for 4-6 weeks until I'm given the okay to fly back home to Ohio, which is where the travel expenses comes into play. This gives me some time to raise funds to go with what I'm putting personally from my savings -- this is where you all come in. I know some of you helped me with the last bit of my top surgery costs so you've been on this journey with me almost from the start, and words can't express how much you all mean to me. Once all of my phalloplasty procedures (hopefully only two or three) are done, I won't be getting anymore procedures. So in other words, this is the final phase of my journey.

Feel free to subscribe to my YouTube channel for a more in-depth look at my transition, and follow me as I go through this next stage of my journey.

Hello everyone! *waves*


I made It safely to San Francisco this morning. I’ll be having my consultation with Dr. Chen tomorrow and my consultation with Dr. Safa the next day. My flight back home is midnight on Wednesday, so I’ll update you all on that too when I make it home.


This view is amazing and my host is the sweetest man who is very aware and completely respectful of trans folks, pronouns, surgeries, etc. I’m staying in an extremely LGBT+ area so that also has me feeling even more affirmed. 


I’ll update you all on the consultations this week. Please continue to donate and share my fundraiser with friends, family, organizations, etc. All of the love and support continue to motivate me through everything, and I could use the help financially. Much love to all of you. :)

Hello, everyone!  Happy holidays to those of you who celebrate. I  wanted to update y'all since I haven't done that in quite awhile.  My in-person consultations with Dr. Chen and Dr. Safa have been moved to the end of January because that works better for both myself and the surgeons.  I'll be doing a video update soon for YouTube, and I'll also be recording a video while in California in January after my in-person consultations.


I love and appreciate everyone who has donated so far!  My phalloplasty (bottom surgery) is tentatively scheduled for June 18th, 2018, so that still gives me a few months to raise as much as I can.  Please continue to show support if you're able and share this fundraiser with family, friends, organizations, or anyone who you think might be able to give even a few dollars. 


Much love to everyone who has supported me thus far and who continues to support me.  You all mean the world to me. 


- Kai

Good afternoon, everybody! I wanted to give you all a little life update since I haven't so far.

September 26th - Webinar/phone consultation with Dr. Safa (one of the surgeons on the micro team who will be working on my phalloplasty aka bottom surgery)


September 27th - I had my total hysterectomy with Dr. Grogg in Columbus, OH

October 13th - First laser hair removal appointment in preparation for my bottom surgery

November 10th - Supposed to have my second laser hair removal appointment but I'm going to have to cancel because I don't have the $300 for that since medical bills came and snatched that away. I'm sad about it but oh whale *insert whale emoji*

December 17th or 18th - Will be taking a flight to San Francisco (planes are #3 on my list of fears and I'm going by myself so... WISH ME LUCK!)

December 19th - In person consultation with Dr. Safa

December 20th - In person consultation with Dr. Chen (the main surgeon; he does the urology parts of the surgery); Hopefully will be catching a flight back to Ohio sometime that night
