I'm excited to let you know about an opportunity for us to come together and show our support to a really awesome guy in our community, Hunter Thompson. If you're involved in the queer community you've probably been lucky enough to cross paths with Hunter. He's an incredible drag performer, and he's passionate and committed to volunteering at OUT Saskatoon. Hunter recently got some very exciting news that he's been waiting for for a very long time - his top surgery date has arrived and is happening on June 1st. Here's a message from Hunter about what this means to him:
Hiya, it’s Hunter just your local queer king becoming the real him. I have been waiting for this surgery for such a long time. Being in the wrong body every single day is painful. I have to squeeze and push my body into tight binders to feel okay going outside and still the size of my chest shows the world that I’m in that wrong body. I have been so uncomfortable With my body that this is going to mean the world to me. With this surgery I’ll be able to look in the mirror without cringing or crying. I’ll be free to take my shirt off and feel free. I want to say thank you for any help you are giving me during my time of healing. I thank you for caring because it honestly means more then you’ll ever know.
Hunter deserves the support of us, his community, to uplift him and take care of him as he rests and recovers from this life affirming surgery. Thankfully top surgery is covered in Saskatchewan, but Hunter will be unable to work while he is recovering. The money we raise from this gofundme will directly help Hunter pay his bills, travel back and forth to Regina for surgery related appointments, medication and medical supplies costs, and anything else he needs to get through this. We are hoping to raise this goal so that Hunter can be comfortable and have a little extra financial cushion in the event healing takes longer than expected.
As someone who went through top surgery only 7 months ago, I am thrilled that Hunter asked me to be part of creating this fundraiser. The outpouring of support I received when I needed it was the greatest act of community support I've ever experienced. I hope you'll join me in uplifting Hunter right now.

Thank you for supporting my pal in this amazing time of his life. This moment is going to be a big milestone, and I hope Hunter will be able to look back on it and remember he is loved and supported always. Let's have his back.
