Queer Closet

The Queer Closet is a donation-based free resource for ݮƵ College students, staff, and faculty to find clothing and accessories that match their gender identities and ultimately create an affirming experience for all genders and bodies.

The closet is managed by the College’s Center for Diversity and Inclusion.

Picking Up Items

For more information, reach out to the Center for Diversity and Inclusion.

Donating Items

The closet relies heavily on donations. All items must be clean and in good/excellent condition without any rips, tears, or stains.

The most in-demand items include:

  • Clothing in adult sizes, extra small through 5XL
  • Formal wear
  • Shoes and accessories (adult gently used or new dress shoes, heels, sneakers/casual shoes, accessories)
  • Chest binders (all shapes, sizes, and colors). Binders are used for breast/chest binding by using constrictive materials that flatten the chest area. Chest binders are predominately used by transgender and non-binary individuals to affirm their gender expression.
  • New makeup
  • Wigs
  • Hygiene products
  • First aid kits
  • Packaged socks
  • Packaged underwear

Hygiene products and non-perishable/dry food items donations are accepted through Remy’s Cupboard.

Donations are accepted year-round. Community members can donate by dropping off items at CDI located on the second floor of the Ulla Searing Student Center between 10 am-4 pm on any normal business day.
