Welcome to my fundraiser page!

My name is Pann and I am a non-binary queer. I was recently disowned by my family and lost my home and a lot of my posessions, while unemployed and in the middle of a major depressive episode. Don't worry though! I have an amazing partner and emotional support network in my chosen family.

What I need right now is to change my name legally to distance myself from both my birth family and my assigned sex. Here's where I need your help:

Fees

  • $27 Search fee for BC birth certificate
  • $25 Criminal Record Check fee
  • $40 Fingerprinting fee
  • $50-80 Notary Public fee for Statutory Declaration
  • ~$5 postage
  • $137 Name Change fee
  • $27 New birth certificate
  • $17 New Driver's License/Services Card
  • $120-160 New passport (not essential)

My uncle said it perfectly after my grandmother died. He said watching her be constantly referred to by her legal name instead of her chosen one as she went through all of the struggles of dementia and heart disease and aging, all of the medical appointments, hospital stays, and time in the nursing home, even the speaker at her funeral (!!!), convinced him how important it was to have his own name changed legally. It's the only way to get your true identity recognized by institutions.

Thank you so much for your time and attention. I appreciate your support!
