CHICAGO — A new Facebook group, TRANSitioning Clothing Swap, has been set up to help transgender people find clothes that fit and match their gender identity.
From the group description:
This group is created to start a place for those transitioning to find clothing confirming their identity. My hope is to eventually have brick and mortar locations throughout the US and Canada where those transitioning can find FREE clothing for their journey in a welcoming environment. For now, it will be a Facebook “swap” group where all can come and find FREE (except for postage which we will try and find donations to cover if needed) clothing, shoes, and accessories for our LGBTQ+ family.
“I really hope this can be the start of something good,” said group admin Karen Grobman. “I’ve heard too many stories of reasons why people can’t get gender affirming clothing. And wearing the right clothes really can make a huge difference in someone’s outlook.”
People can join the group here.
