Christi's Angels is a very special benefit fundraiser for one of Austin's most talented and iconic performers, Christi Foxx Paris. It also serves as a platform to raise awarness about the many issues Trans people constantly face in our country, even right here at home in Austin, TX, a place that many of us consider a haven from the hatred and bigotry found elsewhere. We hope that through Christi's story we can prevent this from happening to another beautiful soul that doesn't deserve it.

«Christi Foxx Paris, an Austin transgender woman, activist and drag queen was raped and beaten almost to death with a hammer to the back of her head. Even after trying to escape twice he beat through doors and continued his attack. She had to have 12 staples to the back of her head, a concussion, as well as sexual and emotional trauma.

She thought this man to be her “friend” but when she said NO he didn't listen. Let's be clear NO MEANS NO even if you are a transgender woman.

Anyone who knows Christi knows she is not only beautiful inside and out, but she is one of the most thoughtful, generous and kind women I know. We are asking for help in covering her medical expenses for her injuries as well as money to help cover living expenses while she recovers. Christi is one of Austins's most beloved and talented Drag Queens and she is unable to work for the next few weeks.

Every amount helps, let's show the love and support Christi has shown countless others.

Also, please continue to follow Christi's story, at this time the assailant is only being charged with assault and battery but we are going to work tirelessly until we get this charged as attempted murder/assault with a deadly weapon. Christi is working with a lawyer and advocates to see this man is brought to justice. She is fierce and a strong brave warrior, but all us warriors need love and support to keep fighting until we win this battle for true equality and justice for all.

Thank you for listening to Christi's story, if you can't donate — sharing her story is also very as helpful.

I stand with Christi Foxx Paris.

Your donations will help Christi to not only face the daunting medical expenses associated with this heinous attack but also to fight the potentially lengthly legal battle that has yet to come. By helping her in this moment we can help all Trans people who might experience the same thing in the future. If Christi can recieve the best medical aid and legal care available she will be able to face this head on and hoepfully find justice for herself and for others.

This is a platform to stand up for all victims of sexual assault and rape. This is where we can come together and show Austin, TX and the world that we will not tolerate it and we will not let those responsible break us down. We will fight back. We will stand beside those that have been affected and we will raise them up.
