HOMELESS DISABLED TRANS WOMAN REALLY NEEDS A PLACE TO LIVE

deerdyke:

Hi, I’m Cheryl. I’m an 18 year old disabled trans woman with an emotionally abusive abusive family that I recently left because they were really close to making me try to kill myself again, and because of that I am now homeless. I’m currently staying with a friend but I don’t know how long she’s going to let me stay. Really need somewhere I can stay for at least a year. I’m currently unemployed so I can’t help pay rent but I have about 600 dollars I can use to pay for food and stuff until I have an income. I’m not comfortable living with non-trans-women. I can probably get anywhere in Michigan and areas surrounding Michigan so…yea.

Please reblog this

Need Couch - Washington, DC

so. hi. i feel really terrible about this but i kind of have to make this post again, bc my situation has suddenly been put on a timetable (even moreso than before)

my name’s jane, i’m a 20 y/o nb trans girl, and i really need a place to stay long-term (upwards of a year or more) within the next 4-6 months

my home situation rn is Bad on a lot of levels, i’ve posted about it before and i don’t really want to describe it in detail again but the point is my situation is super dangerous and abusive, to the point where my life tends to be at risk sometimes. on top of that my mom’s job situation has gotten p bad and she’s probably going to be transferring to florida, and if i’m still living w/ her then that would make moving anywhere else in the country instantly 4000x harder and more expensive

which is inconvenient bc i have very little cash, and i cannot guarantee i will be able to secure a job due to mental illness/mental disability/physical disability/the fact that i’m a trans girl

i don’t need v much space, i don’t eat a lot, i try my best to be quiet and out of the way, and i can do all the cleaning; i also have some games and a nice desk and maybe a tv i could take w/ me - i can’t offer v much outside of that tho i’m sorry

i can probably cover the cost of bus fare and moving and stuff depending on how far i have to go

i cannot and will not be able to drive due to disabilities, so i kind of need to be in a city or somewhere w/ public transit

i’m not able to stay in a house w/ cis men, parents, or large/excitable animals

i’m willing to move basically anywhere but like. im really scared ok when i do this its probably going to be a one-shot thing i don’t have the money to move two times i barely have enough to move at all, i just. i need something stable im so scared if i end up homeless i dont think im going to be. around for v long. i’ll go anywhere i just need it to be. safe and stable and know that im not going to have to look for a new place as soon as i get there

but yeah so. if u have like extra room in ur apartment or something and want to help me out u can contact me via my tumblr (laserlightcannon) or my email (woctordialy@gmail.com)

(again im really sorry about this, i feel like such trash this is like, the third time i’ve made this post wow haha, i’m sorry)

HAVE COUCH - Buffalo, NY
Hello! My name is Thomas and I am currently living in the upper appt of a three bedroom duplex with my cis-gender friend, S. We’re both gay but not romantically or sexually involved. We are currently open to having another person move into our other room in the house. It’s a $250 monthly rent for your room+ utilities. We live within on Ramsdell Ave, near the intersection of Elmwood and Kenmore. We’re two blocks from a shopping plaza with, which is convienient, and we get along well with our neighbors.

We have stairs in the house and it’s not so wheelchair accessible, sorry. We can provide the room for as long as you’d like, you can even stay for the year as a housemate. It’s a rather small room, if you need more space you can exchange with me for mine, which is about 12’x12’ with a closet and about $290. We have no pets, I’m allergic. Small pets are fine, like hamsters or goldfish. There is a backyard so you can smoke if need be. Both me and my roommate can drive, and we both have vehicles. We can drop you off/pick you up occasionally, more than occasionally if it fits in easy with our existing schedules. There’s also a bus route that can take you South through Elmwood village, downtown or to Buff State College. If you walk block north there’s another bus that will take you East to UB (South Campus, which has a free bus to North Campus) and the train station.

Those looking for a safe space to use briefly can use a sleeping bag with a foam mat (sorry not couch or futon).

About us: I’ve known S for a few years now. This is our first year living together, and it’s working out well. He’s a bit reserved and stays in his room mostly. We keep things pretty minimalstic, our lving room has some folding chairs and folding table but they’re usually folded unless we have guests. There’s a pampasan, tv and PS3 more or less out there permenantly. He enjoys MMO’s and fantasy novels. I enjoy fantasy novels as well, also board games and anime. We’re both geeks. I’m also involved in a lot of anti-war activism, and with Buffalo Black and Pink. I’m less reserved than Stoyan, but I frequently spend my time at my computer too. Probably not healthy but it’s makes your appt a nice quiet place. We’re easy to get along with, sometimes we go to eat a cheap buffet, watch tv or doctor a refridgerated pizza with our own toppings. We can both cook basic things so don’t worry if you don’t. I’m vegetarian (considering vegan) and no severe allergies. Stoyan eats anything. Our typical week of food consists of cold cereal, toast, oatmeal, pasta, pizza, burritos, hummus wraps, chef salads, pierogies, and lots of fresh fruit and veggies. If you have any dietary restrictions or allergies, we’ll do our best to accomodate you.

If you want to know more, send my Tumblr an ask (triangleman.tumblr.com/ask) :)

HAVE COUCH - ORLANDO, FL

I have short-term usage for couches for my trans brethren in need!!

I am a 21 yr old mentally ill FAAB nonbinary individual, and I am living with my boyfriend who is a cis, polyamorous pansexual male. We are both 420 friendly and open to any sorts of people.

Unfortunately, we are only able to provide housing between 3-7 days at a time. We also live on the second floor without an elevator, and have three cats and two pet rats. We will not be able to provide transportation too often since he works full time and I do not drive/have a car, but since I am a frequent of the Orlando public transit system, I can at least teach you the best ways to work it. If you have dietary restrictions, we will do our very best to accommodate.

We only request that if you absolutely need certain foods/medicines, then you will be able to get them. (We will take you if you need.) He also requests a light screening as we have had troubling temporary housemates in the past that has made him a bit nervous. At the very least, we can provide a roof and a shower and food. I have been in dire situations before and I know how nice it is to have at least the basic things.

Any other questions, just let me know!

NEED ROOM - NYC Area

Hi my name is Angel. I am a trans male. I may need a place to stay. I can pay rent ($600-$675 a month). I haven’t been able to find a new place yet. And my landlord has been threatening to evict me. I am currently unemployed but I have savings and welfare to get by until I find a new job. I wouldn’t need furniture I have my own. I would just need a room for a year. Preferably in NYC area. Upstate or tri state area would be to far for me as I would need public transportation to get around.

Looking for future roommate(s) in Montreal for July 2015

My name is Sébaste, I’m 18 and I’m a non-binary (AFAB) person. I am currently living in Sherbrooke, but am planning on moving to Montreal in one year for university.

Because I know rent can be really expensive in the city, I am looking for a potential roommate (or roommates) to share an apartment for (at least) the 2015-2016 school year (after that, my boyfriend will be able to come live with me because he will be finished with Cegep, so I at least know that I’ll be able to split rent with him). 

So if you plan on moving to Montreal during that time and are also looking for a roommate, or if you already live there but will need a roommate for that period of time, please contact me.

What I am looking for in a roommate is someone who is accepting of trans people (or trans themselves of course!), a generally good person and who could share rent with me.

I’m planning all of this really early because I want the time to get to know the person or people I might live with. 

So yeah, please contact me if you’re interested :)

HAVE COUCH/RESOURCES- Norcross, GA

Hey! I’m a young, pansexual transgender guy looking to help other people in Georgia, if you need a couch to stay on my door is open. I live with my mother and she is very accepting of all trans people. We have a very small but cozy house and you will be able to stay here for a few days at the most until you can get back on your feet. Longer stays are reserved for underage LGBTQ people. Also, I myself am an experienced resource finder for trans* resources in Georgia, so if you need any kind of resources for therapy, hormones, surgery, a job, or another place to stay, I will most likely be able to direct you.

We have free internet you can use, a shower, and food if you have none. Also, we have a car and while we are willing to help you get around, we prefer if you could arrange for transportation on you own. This does not apply to underage or disability people, we will be happy to drive you anywhere necessary. For adults, we would prefer stays ranging from 1-7 days and for you to have something in advance to be able to get back on your feet. However, if you are 18 or younger, or have a disability, we can arrange for longer stays to be able to help you find a safe place to go to. We will never put you in a situation you are not comfortable with.

WARNINGS: I have a friendly chihuahua, but it’s just a warning in advance for those with severe allergies. Also keep in mind, my house is very small, and we only have only bed, please be ready to sleep on the floor if planning to stay overnight. However, we are extremely clean and can spare you the bed if you are clean as well. ((Since I have insomnia and rarely use the bed at night anyway.))

All we ask is that you be relatively clean and mindful, and sober, our door is open.

DO NOT message me on Tumblr, I rarely check here. Instead, if you want to reach me, email me at- meerkath07@gmail.com, OR pm me on Facebook ((My username is Inuxen)) From there I will be able to give you my number.

We do not and will not judge you, we are just here to help <3

NEED COUCH - Northridge / San Fernando Valley Area

My name is Mike, I’m a 19-year-old trans guy who will be going to school at CSUN starting september, so I’m trying to find a room to rent/sublet starting sometime in August. (short or long term ok)

I can pay up to 800$ a month (utilities included), and I’m a quiet, respectful guy who doesn’t smoke or drink (but is fine living with people who do, or who use 420, or who have pets). I really just want to find a safe, supportive place to live and go to school. Everywhere I’ve tried to live so far has rejected me because I am trans, and dorms seem like a dangerous situation.

I’m willing to help with house work, I have a car, and am generally very self sufficient. 

If you have a room to rent within that price range, or know a trans-friendly person who does, please email me.

HAVE ROOM - RIVERSIDE, CA

Heyhey! My name is Jae and I am currently living in a townhouse with my amazing cis-gender girlfriend. I identify as genderqueer with preferred gender pronouns being he/him/his. We are currently open to having another person move into our other room in the house. (We figured we can share one room and provide a safe space for the other!) It’s a $550 monthly rent for your room+ utilities. (We cover the WiFi!) We live within a gated community— with a pool whoo! We’re in walking distance to Stater Bros, Starbucks, etc. so don’t worry about your snack and coffee fix!

More info: We have stairs in the house so it’s not so wheelchair accessible, I’m sorry! We can provide the room for as long as you’d like, you can even stay for the year as a housemate. We have one cat and two rabbits currently, and are very pet-friendly. (The more cats, the merrier!) There is a backyard so you can smoke if need be. Both me and my girlfriend can drive, she has the car, and can pick you up if you have transportation needs. (If you’re far, please cover gas costs ; A;) 

About us: I’ve known my girlfriend since elementary school, and we’ve been dating for almost a year now. This is our second year living together, and I’m gonna tell you know we’re both insane! She’s a bit more quiet and reserved than I am, but I’d say in the end she’s the funnier person. We’re easy to get along with, and I hope you don’t mind Korean food! (We just can’t give up that kimchi, sadly) We love midnight boba-runs, random Yogurtland/Carls Jr. trips, and of course— spontaneous dates! Most nights we’re watching Netflix or studyin’ our butts off. Our rabbits are our babies, but she worships her cat 100x’s more, fff. (She also likes her plants. She likes to garden ahh) We can both cook so don’t worry about kitchens burning down, and have no dietary or health restrictions (but we’re 120% willing to work with others who do!) and no severe allergies. 

If you need more information, just go ahead and send my Tumblr an ask! ( http://korpia.tumblr.com/ask )

Need Couch - Pittsburg, KS

I’m in a bind and pretty desperate. I’m needing a roommate for when I move down to Pittsburg, KS for school. I’ve tried Craigslist and Roomster.

I’ve only had one person respond, and he’s wanting a graduate student roommate. Is there anyone going to Pitt State or who lives in Pittsburg that needs a roommate? Is there anyone who knows someone needing a roommate? I’m willing to pay for 2 or 3 months rent in advance and am actively trying to search for employment. E-mail: westy3028@gmail.com. I will tell you about myself in exchanged e-mails. Thanks in advance!
