Meet Min, 2023 Annual Trans Surgery Fund Recipient
Congratulations to Min, who has been awarded $12,000 towards his gender-affirming surgery!
Min (he/him) is a 26-year-old trans man seeking FTM top surgery. As a primary financial provider for his family, the financial difficulties have made it nearly impossible to save for a surgery that would change his life. Most of his income goes to rent or his parent's chemotherapy bills. Top surgery had become nothing but a faraway dream for him; Min undergoes social anxiety and bouts of insecurity as a result.
Min works actively for the education system, tutoring children of all ages and caring for his elderly parents when not at work.
He is ecstatic about post-op life. He will be able to go outside without a jacket or vest over his shirt. "Summers will finally become fun again," Min shares. With his dreams of traveling far and wide, he will no longer have to feel paranoid about going through TSA. In short, he will finally be able to live properly and fully.
Min will have surgery with Dr. Scott Mosser at the Gender Confirmation Center in the coming months. The Gender Confirmation Center has been a proud sponsor with Point of Pride’s Annual Trans Surgery Fund since 2018, and we are so grateful for the work Dr. Mosser does to provide gender-affirming surgeries for the trans, non-binary, and gender-diverse community.
