The Gender Expression Collective is an affirming items pantry for transgender, gender diverse, and gender non-conforming people in the ACT and surrounds.
This pantry is a place for community members in need of gender affirming items such as: binders, packers, breast forms, bras, makeup, and tucking underwear to access them locally at low or no cost. The pantry operates on a sliding scale and is free to access for those who are unable to purchase items; for those who can donations of funds or items (e.g. of used binders, makeup, items etc) are most welcome.
The collective also offers one-on-one peer support and information about using all affirming items correctly. A peer navigator will guide you to find the right item for you, and, if needed, will attend any bra fittings or excursions along side you if you wish.
The Gender Expression Collective was created to directly confront ongoing issues experienced by many trans and gender diverse people in the ACT and Surrounds when obtaining gender affirming items. Such as; financial limitations, access barriers, safety concerns, and location (shipping) barriers.
If you would like to donate items to the pantry please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 6162 1924.
