Micah is creating Transgender Health Resources

The Gender Binary?!


Transgender. Genderqueer. Agender. Genderfluid. Gender bender. Gender blender. WTF... Gender?

I'm passionate about creating understandable, accurate, engaging, useful resources – for parents, partners, friends, friends of friends, grandparents, medical providers, allies, queers, and above all, ourselves – to explain the complexities of trans health and gender transition.

My mission is to
contribute positively to everyone’s experience with gender.



¿Transgender Resources?


My main "creation" is my site, Genderqueer.me (formerly Neutrois Nonsense), which I assume you are familiar with. (If you're not, I seriously recommend it. It's like, my favorite site on the whole entire internet.)

Over the past six seven years, it has evolved from personal posts to a highly visible nonbinary community. In 2016, I launched a themed series called Featured Voices. Over 50 guest authors have written about their journey with nonbinary gender!

Last summer year, in collaboration with fellow advocate Charlie, we launched a series called Patients & Providers. We've invited medical professionals from all over the world to share their knowledge, best practices, research, and answer questions on transgender health. We're also encouraging patient perspectives about what it's like to go to the doctor as a trans person.

But my work extends well beyond my blog.

In the background, I'm: writing, researching, social media'ing, preparing workshops, traveling to conferences, training professionals, fielding media interviews, looking smart in panels, consulting, crying under the covers, replying to tons of personal emails, writing research papers, and editing an official capital B-book.

Yep, sometimes I'm an awesome badass. Except I rarely receive monetary compensation.

That's where your boundless generosity and scrunched up dollar under the couch pillow (it's there, reach deeper) can make a meaningful impact.



Pay-treeon. (Am I pronouncing it right?)


So what's the deal with this Patreon thing? And is it any similar to Snapchat? Because I totally don't get that either.

To become my patron, sponsor, gender warrior, all you need to do is contribute a monthly donation. It's as simple as taking me out for a cup of coffee once a month. And who doesn't love coffee?

Monty and Marvin certainly do.


Tell me about the fancy Rewardz!


For just $1 a month - $12 a year - you get exclusive early access to my irreverent newsletter, where I self-deprecatingly narrate how much progress I've failed to make that month. In the higher tiers you will receive more specialer gifts, some of them even touched by my incredibly grippy climber hands.

I think most of you donate for the cause rather than the rewards, but I would love to provide some recognition for your commitment. The "random surprises" are based on the length of time you've been donating, like 6 months, 1 year, etc. What will show up in in your mailbox next? 

To be honest, I care more about the vote of confidence than the money.
It might seem implausible to you given my inspiringly self-assured online presence, but I suffer from paralyzing self-doubt pretty much every hour on the hour. (Ding! There it is again.) Knowing that someone (who is not my dad) believes in me enough to read through all of this and still wants to whip out their credit card demonstrates that this work has real value.


Transition saved my life.


With the right information in the right hands, we can save lives together.
