So, last Thursday, my really close friend Lee & his partner Nathanael lost their home to a fire. Nobody was hurt, but the fire has devastated them psychologically and destroyed everything, leaving them with only a literal handful of mementos left from a lifetime of fighting to have a home (and a truck).
Lee & Nathanael are both trans, queer, mentally ill, and now homeless. One of them had been on medical leave before the fire and was preparing to return to work. Much of what I’ve been doing for the past week has involved emergency visits to help take care of things emotionally, squeezing in times for quick reassurances and talks between shifts, and just generally doing what I can do to keep them going forward. They’re strong people.
And they need help. Between finding a home, mounting medical and survival costs, replacing everything, and just generally to hold themselves together, they need as much help as they can.
I’m going to probably queue this up to repost a few times over the weekend, please if you feel comfortable supporting them at all, or reblogging to signal boost, I implore you to do so. They have community support here, but they’re still a long ways off from even coming close to where they were before, and need any support and care that can be spared.
If you wish to donate any specific materials rather than financial contributions, please contact me, at some point we’re trying to get a list up for specific items lost, but without a consistent place to keep them (my living room has been acting as a miniature storage unit for a few days) the bigger issue for them is just simply affording recovery.
I’ve tried to put this off as long as I can, but I honestly don’t know what else to do. If we don’t pay our rent on time, there’ll be steep fines added, and we frankly can’t afford that, we can’t even afford to make rent on our own, let alone additional fees.
I’m taking commissions, if anyone is interested, or if you’d rather just donate the paypal is firstname.lastname@example.org
I’m he just so miserable and stressed and afraid and I’m so sorry for being such a bother.
Thank you, if you offer help or a signal boost.
Hey guys, I really, really hate to bug everyone as much as I do, but I have run into a big snag. I’m being hired by Target and my orientation is Sunday - problem is, I have no money for my uniform. I have twenty dollars to my name and it is going to be the biggest bitch to find clothing at Goodwill in my size that is under twenty for both.
My family has turned their back on me and my friend is trying to help but has little money herself.
I am asking for anyone who is interested to please check out my Commission Page. I am trying so hard to get my life on track and I need this job so very badly. Please, spread this if you can. I just have nowhere else to turn right now.
Tumblr, I need your help. I know it’s silly to think of it this way (but who can help it in tuff times?), but with all the followers I have, if I had less than 25¢ from each of you, I could tackle this. Wishful thinking.
Been hustling around the clock, just paid rent, but water & electric is scheduled to be shut off tomorrow by 1 pm EST as you can see by the top foto. Obv a shutoff would still be a drag if I were alone, but with kids here, it’s a disastrous threat.
So here’s my ask! Please donate what you can via PayPal to nwn @ nezua . net, or buy some art merch at my cafepress or society6 pages. (Those won’t pay me fast enough, but at least I could possibly borrow against it, if the cash were in my account, en route).
Help support your friendly neighborhood artist and his family! We like our power and water and don’t want to see it go. 🙀
Okay, I can’t be coy about this anymore.
My home life is a nightmare and I need to get the fuck away from my father. If you can spare anything at all, please consider donating to my gofundme. Everything sent to it will be used to help me cover the cost of therapy, clothes for interviews, bras that actually fit, and moving away from my family and on to a healthier, happy life.
Thank you so, so much for anything you can give, blessed be.

"Donation to off-set the funeral expenses for Joan Colbert and Veronica Roach.
Joan Colbert was very active in the Long Branch community and mother to every child she encountered. She was a foster mother to Veronica and took care of her from birth. Veronica was a bright, beautiful 10 year old. Both will be missed greatly.
Due to the sudden and expected nature of this event we are asking for any contribution you donate.”
The Monmouth County Prosecutors Office needs your help in solving the gruesome double slaying this past Friday of a 62-year old Long Branch woman and the 10-year old girl she was raising.
autopsies have determined that the deaths of a Long Branch woman and the 10-year-old girl she was raising were homicides.
Colbert and the 10-year-old were found dead Friday in a first-floor apartment in a home on Lippincott Avenue after police were called at 5:22 p.m., reporting suspicious circumstances there.
The Prosecutor’s Office declined to release a cause or time of death, or to say if authorities are searching for suspects or have someone is custody.
The Roach and Colbert families would greatly appreciate any and all donations to ease the burden of this great tragedy.
Help if you can, and send this out loud and far.
On July 25th, my friends and I were walking down the street towards some place to have lunch during the San Diego Comic Con (SDCC) 2014. A man stops us, asking my cosplayer friend to do a quick interview for his documentary on cosplaying. Which is a common project for filmmakers who attend the con. She signed a release form for the documentary and was ready for the interview.
But once the camera started recording, the host opens up shouting “I’M HERE WITH ONE OF THE COMIC CON SKANKS!” and then continues on with a line of sexually harassing questions. My friend flipped him off and stormed away. The host followed her, continuing on with his questions.
At this point, her friends (including me) surround the guy with a onslaught of obscenities. He explains that it’s just a “prank” and then asks for her to sign a “real” release form. Not only does she refuse, but demands to get the form she signed back. He tells her “no” and then when asked why not, he answers with, “because I said so”.
So I asked him for his name and the name of the youtube channel he works on. He tells me “Kenny Burns” and that he works for youtube.com/pranks.
But that was a lie.
I found out that the name of this disgusting human being is Kevin Brueck and that he has filmed quite a few SDCC related prank videos where he terrorizes cosplayers for youtube.com/break.
This is such a disgusting trend. These cosplayers work long hours and spend an obscene amount of money to make their costume and show it off at SDCC. All of that effort put towards this one weekend out of the year will forever be tarnished by the memory of being humiliated and harassed by this horrible individual.
In one of his videos, he disguises himself as representative of the convention and scares cosplayers with a phony copyright infringement fine.
He needs to be stopped. I want his videos taken off of youtube and I want him to banned from the site as well as SDCC. Please share this story to whatever sites you think would be willing to help us shut down the continuing career of Kevin Brueck, a Comic Con villain!
this is an image taken from the video where he pretends to be a copyright infringement enforcer.
this is a shot of his film crew fleeing away from us as we tried to take a photo of Kevin Brueck
Squash this indignant twit.
I actually know this girl, this is crazy.
To know that something like this could happen to a person you know is scary and heartbreaking.
