NEED ROOM - Tulsa, OK

I’m a 30 year old ftm queer identified individual looking for a nice safe room to rent in late June/early July. I’d prefer downtown Tulsa or somewhere nicely located (Cherry St./ Pearl District) so I can use transit or ride my bike because I don’t have a car. Contact info: theboyruin@gmail (,com)

HAVE COUCH - Ottawa, ON

I’m a dfab non-binary queer person living alone in downtown Ottawa. I have a couch available in my teeny apartment until June 30, and am willing to let somebody stay for up to a week. If you need to stay longer, we would need to discuss rent/chores. Public transit is super easy from here (2 buses stop right outside, and Rideau Ctr is within walking distance), but unfortunately the building is not wheelchair accessible - there’s one stair outside each entrance.

I can pay for your food and/or cook simple meals if needed, and I’m used to accomodating for dietary restrictions. Drinking is okay, smoking (tobacco or 420) is okay on the balcony. No harder drugs please.

There isn’t much privacy here, only a curtain between my bedroom and your space; while I have no problem with sex work, this would make it logistically difficult to cam or see clients at the apartment.

I have a mild-mannered cat. Any small pets are welcome as long as they can get along with her.

My tumblr is the best way to get in touch with me; I check at least twice a day. Stay safe all.

NEED ROOM - Central or Eastern Tennessee

My name is Set, I am nonbinary, and I need a place to stay for a while. I currently live in the house of a cishet male friend’s family. This “friend” is extremely over protective/emotionally manipulative (to the point of attempting to guilt me for socializing with anyone but him, treating me/telling me im pathetic/useless for not being able to complete certain tasks, etc.) and misgenders me on a daily basis, at times purposely. His family is also very christianly and by living with them as well i have to deal with staying closeted about my gender in my own living space, and dealing with transphobic/homophobic behavior constantly. Im not to sure id be allowed to live here at all if i were out to all of them.

Living with my own family members is also not an option as they have either kicked me out, or made my living conditions much too hostile (calling me slurs, throwing out clothing/binders, shaming me for not sharing their views, etc.)

-I currently work at a Walmart in Cookeville and I do not have my own car so i would need someone who would be able to give me a ride/let me drive their car occasionally, until im able to buy my own. I would of course pay you for the extra gas. 

-No allergies

-Ok with alcohol and smoking 

Living here has become too much for me and i cant handle the constant manipulation, misgendering, and stress any longer. If anyone in the area would be able to help me out it would be extremely appreciated. Finally having a safe place to live means so much to me ! Im looking for long term as of now. Unfortunately a temp. walmart salary will not be enough to support myself wholly anytime soon and I have no immediate friends who would be able to help me out with this situation. Noted that i am looking into possible online employment so that driving would be much less of an issue and my income would be much greater.

You can contact me through my gmail which is bulimicparasite@gmail.com . Thank you !!

HAVE COUCH & RESOURCES - Duluth, MN

My roommates (two wonderful gay trans men) and I (faab genderfluid pansexual person) have two couches and a good amount of resources allowing for a healthy meal, a shower, and a good night’s rest. Any dietary needs can be accommodated as needed. There are two other roommates (a cishet couple), but they rarely show their faces outside of their room. We do live on a college campus, but because of the large queer community here, there should not be any problems with nosy/rude/creepy people. One of my roommates has a car and will drive within a thirty minute radius unless I give him gas money (which I am willing to do if you need us to drive further!). We currently have two ferrets illegally living with us on campus. We often have visitors from within our campus’s queer community, but they are all very accepting and will immediately upon meeting you ask your name and pronouns. Up to a week max time just because of apt. restrictions and resources. You can utilize public transport to get you anywhere in Duluth/Proctor/Superior area, and there are also buses to Minneapolis/St. Paul. We have a good support system going, should you need it. Also, there is a place outside to smoke, but not to smoke, you feel? My roommate is allergic to the latter. All ages welcome, even underage. We have a lot of visitors of many ages anyway. Stairs only, no elevators. So not super disability friendly in that way.

Feel free to contact for our couches until the end of May; after that, I could still direct you to the houses of other trans & queer people in Duluth who would gladly take you in for a night or a few.

My URL is quoth-the-doctor.tumblr.com, message with any questions or concerns. If you need my number I can message it to you. c:

HAVE COUCH - Dunedin, New Zealand

We’re a flat of 7 people: one afab agender (me), one amab non-binary, one cis woman and 4 cis men. Everyone living here is queer, 5 are uni students and the other two are working. At this stage we can provide a couch for short-term stays, and are all heavily involved in the city’s queer communities and university queer support systems if you need help connecting with those. We’re also happy to help out providing a place to shower, wash clothes etc if required.

No-one has a car, but there’s a bus stop right outside our house and we’re only 15 minutes walk from town and the university. The flat is not specifically accessible (in terms of bathroom facilities etc), but there are no stairs or anything to get inside. No-one here has any particular dietary requirements, but we can probably accommodate most things.

We have four rats that live in a cage in the lounge, 2 frogs in one of the bedrooms, and a rabbit who’s generally either outside or in her owner’s bedroom. Terms of the lease prohibit cats and dogs, but caged animals, fish etc are probably okay.

Smoking (tobacco and weed) is fine outside.

Most flatmates are involved to varying degrees in the local BDSM community.

NEED ROOM - Arizona

My name is Caiden, I’m an 18 year old trans guy. Me and my fiance are looking for roomates. We are currently in Arizona, but are willing to move just about anywhere as long as we can figure out a way to get there. We’re both very helpful, and will get jobs wherever we can to help out. I also run a few online stores, which helps generate some income. We are in desperate need of somewhere to go so we don’t end up with nowhere to live. And if you’re looking for just temporary roomates, that would be fine as well, as long as we can stay long enough to figure some other things out/get on our feet. We also have one cat, if anyone is looking to gain two roomates let me know!

HAVE COUCH - Petoskey, MI

My current lease is up at the end of June and I’m hoping to get a two bedroom apartment before then. I’m looking for a short term or long term roommate [getting a 1 year lease] for the new apartment.

In the mean time I have a vacant futon/couch if anyone needs a place to stay until I have to move [on July 1st]

Details-
I smoke but will move outside if you’d prefer
I have two cats [very friendly, a bit like cuddly puppies] and two rats [also friendly but timid]
I’m within a mile from most of Petoskey [everything is easily reachable by foot
I have a car and am happy to drive you if needed [as long as I’m not working]
I live on the second floor but park quite close to the building doors.
I am an asexual nonbinary afab person.
I’m a carnist but will limit animal products if requested [also can eliminate pork if needed]

If anyone is in the area and just needs a hot meal, laundry services, or a shower, I am able to offer those.

So, Ill try to summarize… I am MTF trans, I want to go full time but need somewhere I can safely.

  • I need a place to rent.
  • I am subletting currently.
  • I have a full time job ATM, will be seeking new employment. (Current job will not support transition)
  • I own a Jeep Wrangler, debating selling it to fund transition based on new employment.
  • I don’t own a lot, been living in small spaces my whole life.
  • I am a very low impact renter and have no issue doing my part with cleaning and maintenance!
  • I am 6’10, so it would be a bonus if your ceilings are at least that high!
  • I have an allergy to some cat and dog fur, can be handled with meds as long as there aren’t too many.
  • I am very easy to get along with and really enjoy meeting mew friends :)
