I received an email the other day from Alicia Lagan whose son came out to her as transgender two years ago. As she watched her son start taking hormones and adapting to his new life, she noticed he had a hard time finding clothes that fit his changing body.
Alicia and her business partner were moved to create a new company named ‘Every Body’, a clothing line for transgender teens in Los Angeles, but with plan to have stores internationally. Their mission is to help make shopping easier for the transgender community, something I think we all would benefit from. We all want to feel comfortable in what we’re wearing and to not be treated poorly while shopping. Every Body is committed to tailoring clothes to fit kids the way that they would like by designing a specialized size chart. Once opened, the store will be a one-stop-shop for everything, whether it is undergarments, necessary accessories, and other clothing that fit correctly so one can express themselves as the gender they identify as.
At this point they are raising money for their project. If you’d like to learn more about Every Body and help a difference in the lives of our LGBTQ youth, please visit their site.
