Island Sexual Health Society Be informed, not surprised!

Gender Affirming Fittings and Bookings Available 9 NOV 2020.

2020 November 03

Over the course of the pandemic, our organization has been undergoing renovations and upgrades and is transforming into the ‘Island Sexual Health Community Care Center’ to better holistically service the local community. These upgrades include providing the LGBTQ2S+ community with adequate resources. As such we are proud to announce the introduction of Gender Affirming Apparel at The Store at ISH.

We understand that these sorts of items are mostly available online – however fitting for such things (especially binders) is complex and if done wrong can come with complex health risks. We have created a system to provide COVID-19 safe in-person fittings: The store will be open during regular clinic hours for general access. However, we have opened up Monday and Wednesday evenings between 5-8-pm at the clinic for private, after-hours, in-store appointments for the LGBTQ2S+ community. You can book your appointment online now

This initial product roll-out includes a range of binders, packing underwear, and gaffs (including children’s gaffs) from local Vancouver company, Your Open Closet and hand-made, silicone packers from Queer-owned, New York Toy Collective.

We are also excited to stock art and products from local LGBTQ2s+ creators – please follow us on social media for real time updates.

This is just the beginning – and we are always open to and looking for community feedback.
