"Due to the pandemic, and the unexpected expenses related to her mother passing away a few months ago, Zarina needs money to find stable housing, continue her medical treatments for her transition, and survive the pandemic. In case you're unaware: the vast majority of gender affirming surgeries are NOT covered by insurance. Zarina's artistry is bold, innovative and deeply personal. She describes herself as "an intergalactic demoness turned goddess" and "a siren of sultry vibes."" — Fundraiser organiser
