We are on a mission to get our gender-affirming produts to people who can't afford them- free of charge!
We’ll do everything in our power to get gender-affirming products like gaffs and binders to anyone who needs them. We know that for trans and gender-diverse folks, owning something that supports your unique self-expression can be life-changing. Our deepest desire is to help you feel like yourself, however that looks for you.
But unfortunately, buying handmade custom products isn’t affordable for everyone. Although we stand by our price point so that we can create all our products as ethically as possible (see how here!), above all else we want our gender-affirming gear to be accessible to anyone who needs it.
That's why we run programs to get these products to people facing access barriers. We’ve partnered with community organizations to get necessary, affirming products to people with limited access.
We do all of this free of charge
Because this community is our heart. Above all, we’re here to serve you.
How it Works
It doesn’t matter your situation or why you feel you need to apply for free gender-affirming gear. No one is going to grill you or judge you. You don’t have to justify why these things are important to you. We know they’re important to you, that’s why we want you to have them!
Below is a list of our Community Partners. All of these organizations are here to support and remind you that you have a whole community of people behind you on this journey.
Read through the list of partners to find the one that’s closest to you or seems to fit your situation. Then, contact them directly to apply for your free or subsidized gender-supportive products.
If you get lost or confused, don’t hesitate to reach out.
We’re here for you.
