thread4thread: Trans+ Clothing Exchange Web Application
equity & inclusion
mobile or web development
This project improves access to gender-affirming clothing for Seattle's trans and LGBTQ+ community, addressing the challenges they face in obtaining clothes that reflect their authentic selves. Many transgender, non-binary, and gender non-conforming individuals experience ridicule, discrimination, and violence, making body reclamation through clothing crucial for their well-being. Current shopping experiences cater to cisgender bodies, posing barriers and safety risks for the trans+ community. By developing a localized platform to facilitate the exchange of clothing and gender-affirming items, this project will harness the community's potential to uplift one another, promoting a supportive and inclusive environment for self-expression and identity exploration.
