The Gender and Sexuality Equity Center will also be offering a Clothes Swap at the Trans* Conference for trans* individuals who would like to update their wardrobe! ANYONE, whether they identify as cis or trans*, can contribute by dropping off belongings at the GSEC (CSU, Chico BMU 005) the week leading up to the conference (March 24th-28th) or at the conference itself. So dig up those fancy bow ties, classy dresses, and any clean, lightly-used clothing and bring it on down! The intention of this Clothes Swap is to give those who identify on the trans* spectrum the opportunity to update their wardrobe. Please respect that!
