What my names mean to me
I have two current names. Jupiter Bruzer and Yury Dubynin. Yury is my Russian birth name, which my parents erased when they adopted me. The name they gave me is my deadname. I reject my deadname because it doesn't represent me or who I want to be: It represents the person my shitty family wants me to be; A person who will never exist.
Jupiter represents my current identity and my queerness. Yury represents the heritage my adoptive family tried to rob from me.
money (-), help needed
Hey I'm a queer disabled person, dealing with a lot of mental health issues and trauma.
I don't have a stable source of income and I've been really upset and unable to function much these past two weeks so I haven't been able to do many commissions and I'm running low on money. Any help would be appreciated.
I'm a big punk Russian cat! Queer as hell! I'm agender, polyamorous, pansexual, panromantic, and radically left.
