We are so excited to reopen the Transformation Closet! The Transformation Closet provides free gender-affirming gear to folks around Nova Scotia. As we have expanded this program over the past few years we have seen how necessary of a resource this program is.
If you, or someone you know, could benefit from this program, our free gender-affirming gear can be ordered here. We have partenered with a number of community organizations and centres around the province and we are also able to mail out items to folks unable to access these locations. Our program is for folks living in Nova Scotia at this time. You must be able to pick it up or get it sent to a Nova Scotia mailing address.
Some of our pick up centres also double as on-site closets. Feel free to pop into a centre during their open hours to see if they have the gear you are looking for on hand.
The following centres have on-site closets:
- South Shore Sexual Health Centre
- Cape Breton Centre for Sexual Health
- Sexual Health Centre for Cumberland County (Amherst)
- Sheet Harbour Sexual Health Centre (Sheet Harbour)
- The Red Door (Kentville)
- Acadia Sexual Resource Centre (Wolfville)
- Mount Saint Vincent University Pride Centre (Bedford/Halifax)
If you have any questions, concerns, or education requests you can reach out to our Transformation Closet Coordinator, Wren Tian, at firstname.lastname@example.org
We are continuing to explore options to keep this critical program running, and send lots of love to our queer and trans communities! Community support makes a huge difference in our ability to keep this program running, and we are always grateful for financial contributions, donations of gently used gear, and anyone willing to spread the word! If you are able to make a donation towards this program or your item (especially shipping), we can accept e-transfers at email@example.com or you can donate below.
The Transformation Closet is a program run by Sexual Health Nova Scotia and our member centres (https://shns.ca/member-centres/) and community partners. We also receive compassionate items or discounts from supportive partners such as Underworks!
