Slash represents the space between pronouns. The / between she/he/they. Managing your period can be tough, and managing your period while living authentically even more so. The Slash kit is meant to provide relief, comfort, and products to all who fall under the non-cis, transgender identity umbrella (including Genderqueer, TwoSpirited, Non-Binary, Gender Non-Conforming, etc.) through the mail.

Please only request a kit if you cannot afford these products or it is not safe for you to buy them.   

THE WHY

There is a strong overlap between the transgender community and intimate partner violence/domestic violence, homelessness, and poverty. According to the National Center for Transgender Equality, one in five transgender individuals have experienced homelessness at some point in their lives, and one in four have faced a bias-driven assault. In addition, lack of access to gender-affirming support and necessities can lead to a higher risk of attempted suicide. ISTG wants to be a part of the support system.

THE WHAT

Slash Kits are a response to the many messages we have received from folks struggling to manage periods discreetly or safely access appropriate undergarments, especially during COVID-19.

ISTG has always supported the trans/non-binary community through donations of period products, binders, leakproof underwear, bras, and more. The Slash kits allow these donations to be even more direct and customized.

The requestor can choose from a variety of products, all pending availability. While ISTG will do our best to include non-gendered toiletries, there is a chance that the donated products included will be unnecessarily gendered.

We cannot provide kits to people 13 years of age or younger, and 14-17 year-olds need guardian or supportive adult consent.

If you need these items and do not have a supportive adult in your life, please email us at info@iSupportTheGirls.org with the subject line “Slash Support” and requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

  • Leakproof underwear (bikini, hipster, boyshort cuts)
  • Binders
  • Underwear
  • Menstrual products (leakproof underwear, cups, pads, tampons)
  • Toiletries (as available)
  • Makeup
  • Masks and hand sanitizer

The Slash Kits will be sent to the U.S. address provided by the requestor. At this time we cannot ship internationally.

The box will be a standard USPS flat rate box, and will have the name you provide on the outside.
