QT2SI+ Garment Drive Description
Plan B is trying on a new program for size. We are working with community organizations and campus groups in the region to help facilitate an exchange of transition apparel to people in need. Partnering groups will have information cards and drop off boxes available in their spaces during hours of operation. You are more then welcome to stop by and drop off items to whichever spot is easiest for you.
If you have any other clothing that you would like to donate to queer, trans, two-spirit, or intersex+ folks, we would be more than happy to work with you to make this happen. We will be holding frequent clothing swaps in the future for LGBTQ+ folks as a whole outside of this program.
Some of the things we’re intending to do with this program when we have the resources to hold swaps is:
- Hold specific times for Black or Indigenous People of Colour (BIPOC) and South East Asian People of Colour (SEA POC) during swaps.
- Hold specific times for trans, non-binary, intersex, gender non-conforming folks or any inbetweener during swaps.
- Use wheelchair accessible spaces always.
- Encourage low to no scents in spaces by participants, the space itself, and organizers always.
- Encourage cis and/or straight allies to support events by setting up and taking down tables and folding items always.
We are looking for support in the launching and facilitation of this program. Are you part of a group or a business who can help collect garments or store a donation box? Are you looking to get involved in queer and trans organizing? Looking to give back and help create safer spaces for queer and trans folks? Awesome. Connect with us however works best for you!
