Hi I'm a young transgender male, and living in California. It costs $435 to legally change your name and gender in the state of California, but that's $435 I don't have. Its a small amount nothing major but being able to write down the name I want go by would be amazing. Right now only 2 people even call me by the name I want to go by everyone else either don't know I'm trans, or they know but don't accept me. Any thing help thank you for reading this and I hope you have great day.
