We’ve touched on before how awesome the UKYA community is before but it goes further than that sometimes encompassing YA authors further afield and tomorrow launches the Funds For Fox auction. An auction to raise funds for a medical transition.
More specifically the funds are for a double mastectomy for Bath based YA author Fox Benwell “to bring his physical appearance in line with his identity. To eliminate the dysphoria brought on by not seeing yourself in the mirror, and others not seeing you either.
Right now, be binds everyday. It helps, but it’s not enough. Nor is it without health risks, and every day is a choice between his physical and mental wellbeing.”
You can find out more about the auction and how to bid here.
The auction starts on the 11th December 2016 at noon AWST (Australian Western Standard Time) and concludes at noon AWST on the 12th December 2016.
So just what can you bid on???
