G(end)er Swap Mission Statement:
G(end)er Swap ensures that no offensive language is featured on any clothing provided at swap events, stock featured at pop up store locations, or social media posts.
We acknowledge that humans come in all shapes and sizes as well as have a diverse range of clothing preferences. Therefore we try our best to represent this in our clothing stock. G(end)er Swap is reliant on donations and therefore cannot make this a guarantee. We do make specific donation call outs to ensure there is a range of sizes/styles.
G(end)er Swap takes into consideration chemical sensitivities and makes sure that all clothing items are pre-washed and FRAGRANCE FREE.
G(end)er Swap events are facilitated by Santina (they/them), founder of the project & a gender non-conforming human who has a knack for thrifting, weird dance moves & astrology.
