Kids | Youth | Adults
The Clothesline is presently limited due to current COVID restrictions.
Our goal is to source gently used clothing for children, youth, teens and adults who are in-transition with limited means.
Our goal is to help support trans youth, teens and adults who are transitioning, by sourcing locally donated clothing on a one-to-one, custom-need basis.
There are many aspects to socially transitioning for a transgender and gender diverse person.
Clothing that affirms the gender you identify with can be a lifeline that dramatically increases the quality of a person's everyday life.
In Transition Clothesline's goal is to source gently-used clothing (from coats to boots!) that will affirm each individual's gender in their style and size.
We recognize that this can be a timely, financial and emotional challenge for families who are in the process of sourcing affirmative care.
Let us help to ease the barriers and make your journey a little smoother. You are not alone.
WHY DOES THE CLOTHESLINE MATTER?
Research shows that along with supporting a child, having access to social transition tools (clothing, name, pronoun) is vital to improving the lives of trans youth who wish to transition. (Families in Transition)
In a recent survey with trans youth across Canada, those who were living full-time in their felt gender were almost 50% more likely to report good or excellent mental health than those who were not (Veale et al., 2015).
