People often face challenges when trying to find affordable clothing, but these challenges are amplified when a person is transgender or expresses themselves in a way that doesn’t fit in with the “status quo.”
Sudbury Women's Centre is offering the opportunity for people of all genders and ages to come out and access gently used clothing free of charge as part of pride week.
The centre will be running the Pride Swap event at its offices located at 324-F Elm Street Wednesday, July 10 from 6-8 p.m.
As part of the event, the Sudbury Women’s Centre will be offering a free barbecue as well as many family friendly activities, such as face painting.
Young people who plan on attending prom will also have an opportunity to get a free prom dress at the event while supplies last.
“We work very hard to promote a safe space for everyone here at the Sudbury Women’s Centre and are proud to be able to celebrate diversity during pride week,” said women's centre executive director Guilia Carpenter, in a press release.
“We understand the unique challenges members of the LGTBQ2SA+ community face and commit to continue to work with the community to address these issues.”
