Thank you so much for checking out my Patreon page! I am a PhD student in Social Welfare at the University of Washington. By becoming a patron, you can help support me in fully focusing on my goals, which includes my building community and mentorship among trans and queer social work students. For more about my work, including free resources I've created, visit tiny.cc/VernHarner.

About my work:

As a social welfare researcher and scholar, I am working towards futures for trans individuals--including myself. Reflecting on patterns I was noticing in my community, as well as how much of trans research seems to slightly miss the mark, I have spent the past year refining my research interests. I have landed on examining the relationship between historical/personal trauma, intergenerational knowledge, and community defined success and goal setting among trans young adults. Further, I plan to examine how narratives--the stories we tell one another--shape these mechanisms, and how these experiences shape the life course of trans individuals.

Specifically, I am questioning how a community of trans young adults, who often lack mentors and experience a range of trauma, sees themselves (or fails to see themselves) as adults. By learning more about how to leverage my community’s ability to protect and sustain ourselves, I believe we can work towards trans wellness and liberation.

For $50/month, gain access to everything previously mentioned AND have input on lengthier content I create! This  could include blogs, videos, infosheets/graphics, academic and community resources, podcasts, or even papers/presentations I am working on.  Additionally, for patrons at this level, I will read and edit one paper/presentation you create, providing an eye for trans inclusion in what you are creating.

Not in a field or situation where consulting is necessary/needed? Let me know and, alternatively, receive a custom cross-stitch piece each quarter.
Goals
$87 of $250 per month
When I reach $250 a month, I'll start a special blog series interviewing one patron or community member each month, specifically regarding their experiences of gender and narratives.
