Transgender and Queer Clothing Swap, SW Portland, October 13th

Start spreading the word! The more fabulous folks who come, the more fabulous fashion there will be to swap!

The 5th Quarterly-ish PDX Trans and Queer swap will take place during LGBTQIA+ History Month, just two days after National Coming Out Day!

Q Center has been such an incredibly generous partner and support for our four swaps to date and we hope to continue that wonderful collaboration with other types of events that are in the works at Transcend. We’re excited to hold our 5th quarterly(-ish) PDX Trans & Queer Clothing Swap at Portland State University. Stellar transit access and an accessible space in the same building as the Queer Resource Center and Disability Resource Center. Thank you to the QRC team at PSU for offering us this opportunity and collaborating with us on this!

When:  Saturday, October 13th, 2:30-3:30pm

Where:  Portland State University. 1825 SW Broadway Portland OR, Smith Memorial Student Union Center, room 458

Swap Positive listed as a resource for the Aging and Disability Resource Connection

Swap Positive is listed as a resource for the Aging and Disability Resource Connection!  Free Swaps include a variety of different swaps all run by volunteers. I know that those who identify as older or differently abled already attend many of our swaps, but if you would like to start a swap specifically for the aging or disabled, let me know and I’ll make sure to update the entry above to reflect your contribution to the Swap Positive community!  Wouldn’t it be cool to have a swap that could include things like wheelchairs, walkers, canes, crutches, specialty clothing, or other unique and hard-to-find items for those who are recovering from an illness or injury?  If you’re feeling creative and want to start a swap specifically for those with Aging or Disabilities, here’s how. Then of course tell me about it so I can add it to the site.  Even a once a year event would be helpful and an awesome way to share resources!
