Yeah I make small donations BUT I do make donations. If 45 members out of over 600 gave the same tiny $10 I do we would hit our goal every month.

If you are not 'out' yet there are many ways to donate and you can find a way to do it and keep your privacy such as pay pal. Or you can send it to a trusted person and they can donate it.

Privacy should not prevent someone from contributing in my opinion. Even $5 a month does something. And if you are in a position to do more then that is very appreciated.

This place is important to many people and even if you are only reading for the time being you are still getting something out of it by knowing you are not alone.

BUT if you legitimately are not able to contribute that is no problem whatsoever. We welcome you. But please help if you can.
Some people (not me ) put in a lot of work here. Don't let them pay for it too.

Thanks and I am glad you are here. :D

YAY !!!!!! I just saw that we made it this month. Often I see when we come up short and I know that somebody ....... ( the people that do the work here ) ,,,,, are making up the difference.

Thank you to everybody :D

I have been on numerous transgender chat / forums / support /etc for 6 years now.

This place is great. Very little arguing - not heavily moderated or censored because as a group we are very respectful - and fun and friendship. Please keep doing what you can each month. That way we can keep spending time together and sharing our stories.

And I will have a place to give @Monica a hard time. :LOL: Because what is life without it's little pleasures? :ROFLMAO: Well I guess it's not just a pleasure - it's really more of a hobby. ;)

I posted the following in my thread 'I remember when'

So here we go again down memory lane ( with a twist )

I came out in April 2016 and the process took several months but before that in 2015 and early 2016 I had one source of support and friendship with other transgender people. It was an online chat group that is now in my past ( no not that one ).

At the time I was contemplating coming out - very scared - and expected that all of my friends and family would think there was something wrong with me. (sound familiar?)

But there was a place something like this - not as good - where I made friends, had people to vent to - people I could ask questions and in general I felt at home. In that place I became part of a group of about 10 that bonded together - had private chats - video chats and got to know each other. To my surprise and excitement they invited me to a group get together for a long weekend. And I traveled for the first time presenting as female (with my male ID ) :oops::LOL: I was scared but it felt good.

On this site I have made new friends - some of them have become very close friends @NicoleT @Lexxi @Monica - obviously I have poor taste in friends :eek::LOL: But there are many others I consider friends @TonyaJanelle @CrackDown29 @OzGirl @Kenna and many more.

If this site didn't exist I would only know a couple of them.

There is a wide variety of people here. Those out for years, those still in the closet, those struggling to come out, those trying to find their way.

There are young and not so young. There are those with financial means and those without.

There are a couple things we have in common. A desire to find our way in this world as people that do not identify entirely or at all with the gender we were assigned at birth AND a desire for friendship - support -a place to vent - a place for fun and to ask questions. Or all the above.

In order for this place to exist there are people that do a lot of work for free - not for a profit but because they care and think this is important.

I used to be someone that was financially well to do - now I am not. But I still contribute a small amount - because it is important to me. And if you know you are unable to do so we still welcome you with open arms.

But if you know you can spare something please contribute - this is an important place for many ..... and for YOU.
Thanks
Kim

Thanks Kim! This forum and the our other platforms such as zooms, discord, and youtube are mostly funded by committee members, and most of the donations this month have been from committee members. None of us are rich, and we want to contribute to the trans community as much as we can, but it's still not enough, so we really appreciate the support!

Hugs,

Allie
