Zaire is a black, trans, chronically-ill queer who has been struggling with ongoing homelessness for their entire life, on top of chronic illness, ongoing health struggles, and the daily violence of anti-blackness and transphobia moving through this white supremacist world.
Zaire’s housing recently fell through yet again which means that in less than a week they will again be without housing as they have no money for rent, let alone money for food and their numerous medical expenses.
I am putting this fundraiser together for Zaire because they need and deserve to have folks with resource access show up for them so that Zaire can first and foremost have access to housing (even if temporarily), and to ideally get them with enough funding to be able to have the time to decrease some of the stress in their daily life in order to be able to find more stable long-term housing.
Zaire has the option of staying with friends in Los Angeles temporarily, but has no money to get there.
All funds will go to Zaire to support money for transportation, rent, food, medical expenses, and other needs.
