Salem Leonard-Goosby is creating A Disabled, Queer, Non-Binary Transgender, Chronic Illness Blog
27

patrons

I am a chronically ill, non-binary trans masculine, queer, neurodivergent, blogger, writer, poet, knitter, and creator of things both raw and whimsical. My goal is to share bare emotional truths,  moments of connection to warm us up when we feel to cold and alone, for those of us who may be more isolated by life's circumstances.

Pledging helps me live and create, it will allow me to be a more financially productive member of my family, to make ends meet, to stress less, and focus on my writing and other art in a more serious and continuous fashion as well as helping to provide materials for tangible supplies.

I believe that I deserve to live, that other multiply marginalized people do as well. This is my commitment to that belief.

Goals
27 of 50 patrons
Disability and chronic illness have forced me to change how I use and think about my abilities, tools, and resources. If you contribute you will be helping me be empowered to financially contribute to my family's well being and be a more automomous and productive person. My primary goal is to do everything I can to help my family thrive with the tools I have, inside a system that makes it very difficult for disabled trans people to flourish. Your patronage will pay for both the tools I need to keep making art, carefully arranged words, *and* to equally important, to meet basic life needs such as food, bills, and clothing.

With 50 patrons I will be getting just about to a place of breaking even, to meeting our family's basic everyday needs. It will mean a modicum of stability and hopefully relative wellness.
