Genderbands Free Chest Binder Program for Trans Individuals

Open Opportunity


Chest binders are an essential part of trans and non-binary health, providing relief from gender dysphoria by giving the chest a flat appearance. Chest binders tend to cost at least $35 per binder and unfortunately, this is out of a lot of trans individuals' budgets (with trans people being disproportionally affected by lower socioeconomic status, particularly trans BIPOC). Many minors apply for the program because they don't have a safe way to get one from guardians in their lives. I am the program director.  I'm a Psych major at USU and I am a trans man. If you live in the Orem area we could really use help packaging and if you're outside that area there's lots of online help needed (we currently have over 4000 applications).
