Hi, my name is Victor and I’m a transgender man from Czech Republic. I’m making this fundraiser to help me raise money for top surgery. Czech Republic’s laws are still not very accepting of transgender people and they’re many obstacles you have to endure to for example: be able to change your sex on official documents or change your name to the opposite gender.
My chest is the main part of my gender dysphoria and it’s taking a toll on my whole life. I’ve been struggling with daily tasks like showering, changing my clothes... because seeing my bare chests makes me nauseous. To this day I still struggle with self harm connected to my gender identity struggles, sometimes I have urges to cut my chest off myself. By now I don’t really care how disfigured my chest will look I just need to get it off. I’ve also been struggling with suicidal thoughts for the past few years, being trans is one of my main reasons for this because my state is not letting me transition and be my true self. I simply do not see the point in living if I have to be in the wrong body.
I have consulted with a psychiatrist, psychologist and a sexuologist about my gender identity disorder but the process of getting hormones, surgeries from public healthcare takes decades and the pain I have to endure right now is unbearable.
In the past I had tried to accept my body the way it is but no matter how much I tried I could never bring myself to love it because it just wasn’t me. Sometimes I feel like my life was destined to be doomed since the start, because I was already born in the wrong body. I struggle with other disorders because of my gender dysphoria, like GAD, panic attacks, and binge eating disorder.
I firmly believe that hormones and surgery are the only way to help me.
