In Transition Clothesline

Kids   |    Youth    |   Adults

We've access to a wide variety of clothing for children and adults - no charge!

 

Take a peak at some of our current business attire - visit our SHOP.

 

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).
