About the Program
In 2020, the Student Justice Centre (SJC) launched the free Chest Binders and Breast Forms Program for Brock Undergraduate and Graduate Students.
This year, we are so excited to announce the expansion of this program to the Experience Pride: Gender Affirming Gear Program!
Previously, the CBBF program offered students the opportunity to order Chest Binders and Breast Forms from a few vendors. This new program will allow students to order from new vendors and includes a range of items such as: Chest Binders, Breast Forms, Packers, Tapes, Padding and other gender affirming gear!
Frequently Asked Questions
“Gender-affirming gear is anything that helps affirm one’s gender identity by contributing to one’s gender presentation. Traditionally this means things like binders, gaffs, packers, STPs, and breast forms. However, from a holistic lens, gender-affirming gear may also include things such as beard stains, makeup, and clothing.
For those that experience gender dysphoria, affirming gear can help reduce dysphoria-related stress and/or increase one’s sense of gender euphoria or gender pleasure. Affirming gear also serves as a form of harm reduction. Two-Spirit, trans, and gender-diverse folks are at significant risk for mental health struggles, and access to gender-affirming gear can play a significant role in minimizing this risk and promoting positive mental health.”
