Trans Community Fund
In the meantime, check out the Pride Center of Edmonton and ask about their binder exchange program. The Trans Community Fund will be back up and running on August 15, 2020.
About the Trans Community Fund
The QUILTBAG's Trans Community Fund is available for low income trans, non-binary, and two-spirit people to access gender affirming items from the store at no cost - this includes binders, gaffs, bras, packers, clothing, shoes, accessories, body products, and more.
Accessing the Fund
Individuals can access the fund through a brief initial intake with staff or volunteers at the CHEW Project, the Pride Centre of Edmonton, or Shades of Colour. The amount of funding that each person can access is determined based on a discussion around needs, and based on availability of funding. If you are trans, non-binary, and/or two-spirit and interested in accessing the fund based on financial need, please contact the CHEW Project, Pride Centre of Edmonton, or Shades of Colour for intake... they will get you set up to do some shopping!
