Today marks the FOURTH anniversary of Living With XXY as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. I never imagined this would become what it has today, and it has given me the confidence to believe in myself. If my voice has made a difference, then this is why I speak so strongly about others sharing their stories.

My journey started on September 13th, 2017, when I made my first YouTube video, putting myself out there among all the dreadful images and drawings, outdated text, misinformation, and old research papers.  

Almost everything I read online and the photos I saw from June to September 2017 made it difficult to understand why XXY presented this way. I told myself that I couldn't be the only person who has had to work three times harder than everyone else, and there had to be others like me. I told myself I had a voice, and now was the time to use it.  

Since the summer of 2017, I have had the opportunity to meet over 800 men and boys with XXY in person and have talked to thousands worldwide. Here are just a few of the many accomplishments we have been able to do in four years.

  • Save 300+ babies from termination.

  • Remove the Google Image.

  • Provide a safe space for people to share their stories.

  • We created the first brochure with real people from our community.

  • Published in Oxford University Press.

  • Podcast with over 100 episodes and 35,000 plays.

  • YouTube videos surpassing 2,600,000 views.

My most difficult challenge is asking for money to support this community we have created together. Raising donations to support our Nonprofit has always been difficult. If Living With XXY has impacted your life, I ask you to donate this year.

We have a donor who would like to support a matching grant of up to $30,000.
