Second Use is pleased to accept donations on behalf of Queer & Trans Clothing Exchange Seattle during our Handmade & Homegrown Market on Saturday, April 16th at the Second Use store. This is a fantastic opportunity to put your spring cleaning to good use and help support the Seattle LGBTQ community.
The Seattle Queer & Trans Clothing Exchange is seeking clothing, shoes, and accessories of all sizes and styles, with high need for:
- Professional clothing
- Weather durable and warm clothing
- Large feminine clothing and shoes
- Small masculine clothing and shoes
- Padded Bras
- Unused makeup
- Costume jewelry
- New socks and underwear
The event will be November 14 & 15 at Pipsqueak Gallery, and is open to all members of the LGBTQ community. Everything is pay what you want, with proceeds going to future events and local community groups. While there are current Trans clothing exchanges, the reach of their collection efforts can be very limited. It can be especially difficult to bring in a wide range of sizes and styles. They provide a safe space to get gender-affirming clothing at no cost, and outreach to those in our community facing barriers to access.
Donations can be dropped at the entrance of the Handmade Market. For more information and other drop off locations, visit Facebook.com/qtexchange
