Gender Expression Donation Project

Gender Expression Donation Project

At FORGE we know that many trans/non-binary folks unfortunately face disproportionately higher rates of discrimination, victimization, and often, as a result, incarceration.  During this holiday season, we are asking folks to please consider purchasing or donating any of the following “gender-expression” items that might be needed by members of the community who have recently been released from detention, those who are in shelter, or have been victims of crime. These items allow individuals to be their true selves and can make a world of difference during a difficult time.



  • Packers
  • Packing harnesses
  • Shapewear
  • Make-up
  • Breastforms


New or Gently Used:

  • Binders
  • Sports/pocket bras
  • General Clothing
  • Wigs

Bring your donations to any monthly FORGE meeting, send items to PO Box 1272, Milwaukee, WI 53201.  For more information, contact Ashley

Thank you!
