At this point in time, we have made the decision to not financially sponsor individuals. We cannot possibly fund all of the inquiries we receive and this puts us in a place choosing one person over the other since we cannot help them all. Knowing that transition is an expensive journey we help in other ways the makes sense to our business. We hire trans guys to work here, so that they can help fund their own transition costs, as well as we provide the highest quality and lowest priced gear that we can list on the site knowing these things can be expensive and adds up. We participate in monthly drawings via various YouTube channels to provide the winners with boxers/packer combo. We have done this since we opened over 6 years ago. Throughout the year, we also financially help out local community-based 501(c)(3)s, non profits who help the community as a whole. TranZwear has and will continue to donate financially and with gift certificates to these certified non profit groups.
However, to help promote safe sex, either with a partner and/or silicone, we provide the opportunity to receive a packet of condoms, lubricant, & safe sex info with each order. This includes the option of being able to choose latex or non-latex condoms. Our community is underserved when it comes to HIV/AIDS education and with our donation to each of you, we join local and national health educators in their desire to keeping you healthy. This includes handing out these packets at trans-related events: SF Pride and the Trans March SF.
Thanks to our vendors who have helped make this happen:
Honey's Place, Boy Butter, El Dorado Trading Company, and Slik Willie.

TranZwear is currently donating to groups that help guys with their post top surgery medical supply needs. We are buying medical supplies and sending them to the groups that are assembling the aftercare packages then delivering them directly to the guys where they are recovering. If you know of anyone who might need this type of assistance, please let us know via email and we will see if we can help them with this donation.
The original owner/founder of TranZwear® has consistently shown his commitment and support to the LGB/Trans community. We learned that:
"............the proceeds from the sale of TranZear was donated to several GLBT programs in support of gender identity programs, support groups, and the fight against HIV/Aids. By TSW Enterprises."
As the owners of TranZwear®, we are inspired by our founder's spirit of generosity. We are committed to offering support to the community through donations to programs that protect, represent, serve, and care for LGBT, gender queer, and trans-people.
Thanks to all of you, TranZwear® is able to send $350 to Lyon-Martin Clinic through our donation pledge for the month of February.
Thank you, TranZwear® customers, for making this possible. Thru your orders, we can help build and support our communities.
Tranzwear® is proud to donate to a groundbreaking SF women's/trans clinic in financial distress
Since 1979, Lyon-Martin Womens" Clinic has provided services to some of the most marginalized women in San Francisco. Like many of the Bay Area’s community clinics, Lyon-Martin has been struggling with the effects of the recession: more patients, less money from donors, less money from patients and this summer’s devastating freeze on MediCal payments. As of today, the Clinic is in danger of permanent closure. Immediate donations are needed to pay for expenses.
