Diverse Xpress Launch Date

On March 24th, 2016, a project aiming to help trans & non-binary (as well as many people with other gender identities) will launch on Indiegogo. The project will be buy-1-give-1 subscriptions to items including bras, binders, panties, gaffs, pride items, binaried clothing, pronoun pins and fun pride buttons, and more!

Here are two potential box listings, and be sure to check out www.diversexpress.com on March 24th to support this project.diversexpress logo

Box Listing

This is the moment you've been waiting for... what's in the darn things?

Here's a list of what's might be in a typical box, and each box will be entirely customized for the recipient including size, color (as we're able), binary or no-binary, and much more.

Box List #1- 4+ pride trinkets, customized to the recipient's identity: including keychains, tattoos, stickers, pins, and pronoun pins.
- 3 panties or gaffs, in the recipient's size
- 1 binder or 2 bras or 2 clothing items, in the recipient's size and binary or lack of binary
- national and local resources
- and, for Youth boxes: a Letter of Encouragement

and another potential box:

Box List #2:
- 4+ pride trinkets, customized to the recipient's identity: including keychains, tattoos, stickers, pins, and pronoun pins.
- a toiletry & tool kit in your chosen binary or lack of binary
- a stand to pee or makeup
- 1 clothing item in the recipient's size and binary or a book
- national and local resources
- and, for Youth boxes: a Letter of Encouragement 

How it’ll Work

This is a buy-one-give-one program, where your purchase of a subscription box provides one for a trans youth in need.

The youth will be nominated by their center or a friend/relative. If they're not out to anyone, they can nominate themselves. We’ve reached out to every center we can find, and we will let them know when we’re ready to accept nominations. The age of the potential recipient, as well as the timing of the nomination, and finally filling out the paperwork that allows us to fulfill all of our internal needs (for things like reporting), will be the one of the only 2 necessary criteria to become a receiver of a subscription-- the other will be being 24 or younger.

Logistics. For sponsors, we'll be switching information over to either cratejoy.com or WooCommerce, where we'll create accounts for you in order to track boxes, preferences, etc! Youth subscriptions may be taken over to one of these places-- but we're working out the logistics and safety measures. 

Final Request

This is, in so many ways, a community project-- shaped and un-roughed by many hands, hearts, and tireless hours of labor. If you love this project, please support it financially (if you're able). If you're unable to do that, but really want to be a part of this -- get in touch (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). We'll find a way for you to help!
