Main Group

This group is open to everyone 18 years of age and older who are LGBTQ-identified, questioning, heterosexual, or cisgender. We meet to talk about identity and it is our goal is to create safe space for self-expression. This includes heterosexual and cisgender individuals who may be struggling with other forms of discrimination. We aim to ensure that this remains a safe space where we can all have respectful dialogue and connect regardless of our differences or past experiences.

Our meetings are held on the 2nd & 4th Sunday of each month from 6:00pm-7:00pm  (unless otherwise noted).

Partner & Family Group

This group is open to any partners, friends, and family of transgender and gender non-conforming individuals who would like support and are 18 years of age and older. This is just as much a journey for partners and family members as it is for the loved one, so we strive to create a safe space to communicate and address what is on our minds. We aim to ensure that this remains a safe space where we can all have respectful dialogue and connect regardless of our differences or past experiences.

Our meetings are held on the 2nd & 4th Sunday of each month from 6:00pm-7:00pm  (unless otherwise noted).

Our TransCloset is a free clothing service available for trans-identified individuals and anyone struggling with issues related to gender expression in the Charlotte area. We offer a safe space– no gendered fitting rooms (or bathrooms) here– to explore a variety of clothing options, allowing you to discover your own unique style in a stress-free environment.

Don’t know your size? Don’t worry! We know that interpretting the size tags in gendered clothing that you may not have experience with can be daunting. Our staff and volunteers are trained to help you select the correct size.

Clothing donations from both the trans and non-trans community help us keep our clothing styles up to date and rotating! However, at this time we are accepting men’s apparel and all accessories, undergarments, cosmetics, and shoes for any gender.

To set up a closet appointment, please click here.
To coordinate a clothing donation drop-off, please contact us.

**Please note: We request that all clothing items arrive folded and in boxes (no plastic bags) to keep sorting as efficient as possible for our volunteers– not to mention we can recycle the cardboard! Thank you in advance.
