Mx. Valentino is creating music & art

Hi! I'm Vicente, I go by Mx. Valentino professionally. I am a QTPOC living in PDX, making music and visual art. I play singer-songwriter folk jazz on classical acoustic guitar and ukulele, and I also make visual art (mostly hand drawn, currently trying to transition to digital media).

This Patreon is very important to me because I use these funds to pay for my Mental Health Therapy. I spent all of my childhood into young adulthood physically and emotionally abused by my biological mother and now have Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder as a result of that - as well as Major Depressive Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder, and Generalized Anxiety Disorder. I have a wonderful therapist and therapy is absolutely crucial for my health and to survive.

I want to live to keep making art, and I need therapy to make that happen. 

My therapy costs are $320 a month as I am not covered by insurance and my therapy office does not take any insurance other than Medicaid, which I do not qualify for. 

I am also chronically ill and physically disabled, I am on my own, no familial support whatsoever, all of my income comes from my job and whatever gigs I play. I pay $950 a month in rent by myself, living alone. I've done my best to consolidate my bills but with cost of living that high, I simply cannot afford $320 a month for therapy without the help and generosity of others. 

I am putting this Patreon up as a way to gain support to help me thrive instead of struggle, and to give me more impetus to make more art. It's a win-win situation.

Please consider becoming a patron and making a difference in an Afrolatinx trans artist's life in times such as these.

Anything helps. Even $1 a month.

Thank you very much! I look forward to showing you what I create!
