Fourteen-year-old transgender teenager Asher Doyle has mounted an online fundraising campaign to help him raise the funds needed to pay for tuition at an LGBT-friendly Quaker boarding school in Asheville.
Doyle, whose mother is supportive but whose father has been absent from his childhood, has already been given a $10,000 scholarship from the Arthur Morgan School. Officials there presented Doyle with the scholarship when they heard about the fundraising campaign.
Doyle recently returned from a visit to the school and has decided it is the perfect place to continue his academic studies in a safe and nurturing environment.
To pay for the full cost of the scholarship, Doyle needs about $7,000 more.
