Trans & Non-Binary Solidarity Fund
We are pleased to be launching our Trans and Non-Binary Traveller Solidarity Fund. We have recently acquired some funds and have set aside an amount which can be used to buy clothes, cosmetics, or anything else that would help you to feel more comfortable in your presentation like binders, packers, shapewear, bra inserts, hair styling, tailoring and alterations... And probably a thousand other things that I would never think of, because the little things that make a meaningful difference can be so personal.
As of Sept 1st 2020, we've launched a free Binder giveaway. You may still ask for money for binders here, but if you want you can get the free binder from us and then use the money for something else.
We are aware that for many people, particularly those who are near the beginning of their journey, however old they are, it can be difficult to access the material things that can help you to feel comfortable - And difficult to know where to even start, so every purchase can feel like a huge risk. We hope that by offering a little help, we can encourage a few people to just take the plunge and buy the things they need, without having to agonise for too much longer.
To apply for some of our solidarity funding you can email us on email@example.com or phone/text us on 07395 355 066.
If you think you would benefit from this but need some help deciding what to buy (e.g. where to find trans-friendly barbers, or which brands of binder to buy) we have Trans Travellers who can give you some advice, just drop us a line.
We can either send the money directly to you or can order whatever you want and have it sent to you or to someone you trust nearby if you are worried about getting a delivery at home.
Our funds are currently limited so we’re asking people to limit their claims to £50 initially, which can be split up however they like - It could be a contribution towards a big thing, or a dozen small things, or anything in between. We're only offering funding to those in the UK.
We don’t want money to stop you living as yourself, so we’re doing what we can to help change that.
