Notes

From the website:
"A HISTORY OF REJECTION: Haircuts are historically gendered: Salons for women. Barbershops for men. This leaves the trans community feeling uncomfortable, unwelcome and unsure.
A FUTURE OF ACCEPTANCE: Strands For Trans is bringing gays, straights, women, men, anyone, together to create more trans-friendly barbershops and hair salons. Join in and let’s help this community feel welcome."

The website features a map with participating barbershops and salons, and their addresses and phone numbers. You can zoom in on your area to see what's nearby!
