LGBTQ+ Clothes Swap - Manchester

Saturday, July 13, 2024 Social Refuge 27 Great Ancoats Street Ancoats M4 5AJ

Clothes swaps are a great way to explore your style, help others and save clothes going to landfill.

 We've been putting these events on since July 2022 and it's been heartwarming to see so many people exploring their style, their gender, or just revamping their wardrobe for something fresh.

You'll be able to drop clothes off from 11.30 but we won't allow anyone in to swap from 12.00 to make sure we've set everything up. The bar will be open as normal during the event.

If you don't have clothes to swap but you want to take clothes, that's fine! We'll always take bags for life and coat hangers as donations. We'll be taking donations to Trans Support Hub CIC which helps us keep these events free for those who can't afford an entry fee.

We try to recycle clothes where possible but we really appreciate it if you could check that donations are clean and in good condition.

There will be a changing room and mirror if you want to try things on. If you want to bring your friends, the more the merrier. Speaking of which, you don't have to be LGBTQ+ to come along, but we do need you to be respectful that this is a safe space.

We've already got plenty of donations from our previous events. Where possible, we try to get more specialist trans related items like binders and chest enhancers.

We'll be taking pictures to promote the work we do and future events, please let us know on arrival if you don't want us to take your picture. 

Can't wait to see you all there!
