The Story

Hello there dearest bbs, family, chosen family, friends, and community,

As some of you may know, a lot has happened to me in the past month:
I started my new job at the Ali Forney Center
I received confirmation about my top surgery which is scheduled for September 19th
I moved out of Bedstuy because my rent went up a whopping ridiculous amount of $600   -_____- 

As a result, my mother graciously offered for me and my partner, Martina, to move in with her while I recover from surgery. Which also lends a hand at us finding a new place to move into once I'm recovered.

Here's the thing though:
I won't be working for about 1.5-2 months
Martina will be taking time off from work to assist me
My mother was laid off from her job months ago so Martina and I have offered to pay for some of the rent, food, as well as internet being that my mom cut out that expense a while ago and I DESPERATELY soooo need it now while recovering!!!
AND to top everything off..... My laptop is broken :(

***I made a GoFundMe account back in 2014 for Top Surgery and had a fundraiser party. I didn't reach my goal, however, I still have those funds and set them aside for medical post-op needs, moving, and misc. expenses. Thank you to all the folx who donated and showed up. It really meant the world to me.***

Soooo here is a breakdown of my budget:
One month's rent and utilities: $900
One month's groceries: $200
Broker's fee (hopefully not!)/ security deposit: $750-1450
New laptop: $500
Apartment application & credit check fee: $150 (Because Brooklyn nowadays - _-)

Grand Total: $3,200

I'm reaching out to all of you fine folx in hopes of support.
I've seen what our community is capable of doing for each other because of the love and care we have for one another.
Thanks for reading. I am so thankful and grateful for each and every one of you forever and always!

With love,
Sugi

3 hours into surgery! Sugi was nervous-cited and we (Martina and Mommy) watched them head into the operating room with the staff, who were all very attentive, kind, and respectful. More updates when Sugi emerges! Thank you again to everyone who has donated so far!
