The Trans Closet

The trans closet is a service that centers QT students. Visit us in OMA 102 and take what you need.

The Trans Closet is a collaborative service provided by The Center for Sexuality and Gender Diversity and The Office of Multicultural Affairs. It is a community resource which provides clothes, shoes, makeup, binders, and a variety of other gender-affirming materials for the trans community, at no cost, any time The Office of Multicultural Affairs is open. The closet provides a chance for people to find gender-affirming clothes and resources with privacy and in a space meant for QT people. While this resource centers trans folks, it can be used by anyone in our community who needs any of these supplies.

Most of these materials are donated, cleaned, and put into the closet for pickup at any time.

Donations are always accepted at The Center. Items students are most excited for are make-up, jewelry, and business casual clothing. When donating, make sure items are clean and freshly laundered, there are no stains or holes, and you believe college students will enjoy them. To donate, drop items off at The Center during our standard business hours.

The Trans Clothing Closet is located in OMA room 102 (which is just around the corner from The Center). The Trans Clothing Closet is located here to better serve the BIPCO QT community.
