Binder & Gaff Program

The Youth Project can provide chest binders and gaffs to youth (aged 25 and under) in need. With your binder or gaff, you’ll receive a sheet with wear & care instructions.

To qualify, you are…

  • A transgender youth aged 25 or younger
  • Living in Nova Scotia

To Apply:

PLEASE NOTE: The Binder/Gaff Program is on hold for December 2017. We have had multiple issues with the submission forms not working, consistent supply and mail getting lost. Given these issues, we are putting the program on hold so we can update the systems we use so they can work for everyone. We’re sorry for any inconvenience! We hope to have a system that works better for us in January.

If you are able to purchase a binder or gaff, you can do so locally in Halifax at Venus Envy, or in Wolfville at Valley Vixen.

For  binders, you can also purchase them via the online retailers Underworks or GC2B.

For gaffs, they are available online at TheBreastFormStore; please note this is a more adult-focused website for gender performance, the gaff selection is also what’s available locally at Venus Envy.

If you are seeking children’s sized gaffs, check out LeoLines or TuckBuddies 

The orders we have already received will be filled in December.
If you have not received your order by the end of December, it could be because the order did not go through OR you listed your address/contact information incorrectly and we could not contact you.

You should receive an email once your order is sent in the mail or ready for pick-up at the office. We usually send them out within 2 weeks of receiving an order.

If there is more demand that we can supply, we will maintain a wait-list until a binder or gaff of your needed size is in.
