Hi, my name is İdil and I am a 21-year-old trans woman living in İstanbul, Turkey. I am studying Architecture in Istanbul Technical University.

As you know, being a transgender is so hard in Turkey. This is a place with high discrimination and murder rates. Trans people even can’t find places to live and most of all are forced to be a sex workers.

In these conditions, I am trying to live, study and save all my money to get my surgery without the support of my family. This is really hard for me.

If I can get this money, I can have my surgery and get a woman’s ID card. And this will prevent most of the disadvantages that I face in my daily life. For example, I can rent my own flat because I cannot stay in my university’s dormitories because of my ID and real estate agents don’t allow me to rent a house for myself as a trans person. This surgery also will help me to feel comfortable in my own body.

Thanks for all your support.
