Hi, My name is Tania or Tandy like my childhood name, im 18 and a transgender man. I have become homeless due to covid-19 and run away from being locked up at home after coming out as trans. I just finished highschool in Jakarta on august 2020 and came back to Yogyakarta, Indonesia on last month, but it seems like my sister didnt like the way I look too boy-ish and she told my parent about it (my conservative parent lives in different city called Makassar). then my mom phoned me and angry about it and ask me to go back to Makassar, I was scared so I decided to run away from Yogyakarta to a city called Bandung. after I got into Bandung, I decided to come out as trans to my mom with expectation of being accepted in family. I thought it went well at first, but it wasnt. somehow my parent find out that I ran away to Bandung and come to the city from makassar to bring me back. they got me, and I couldnt do anything, they took my phone, and I had been locked up at home and cannot even communicate to my close friends. also I have a lot of mental breakdown because they thought it is disease and they called priest to do an exorcist to me to let go of the queer demons out of me. I was really scared and depressed so I ran away with just bringing my ID. Now I live far away from my family and without cellphone, I go to Internet cafe to contact my friends, and been living on a rental place since the day I ran away (March 25th 2021). I was looking a shelter for lgbtq+ community and found one in Bali but they were unable to help at the moment. Im trying to go back to Yogyakarta and find a safe place to live and find work. Also I hope I could get into art institute next year for undergraduate study. any amount you can donate would be life-saving, so I can find a secure place to stay.
Thank you so much, whoever you are, for reading my story. Please consider donating or share my page if you can, i would appreciate any type of help. Thank you, once again. - Tandy.
