Metamorphosis Mobile Boutique is run by a collective of volunteers who believe in helping LGBTQIA+ youth, families, and allies feel welcome,and confident in their appearance. As a mutual aid project—and not a charity—we exist as a form of political participation, one in which participants take responsibility for the caring of one another and changing our political conditions. In our first year of operation, we have given freely $13,000 in stylish clothing at a dozen events in and around Orlando, Florida, and have recently expanded to the Philadelphia area. Our average takeaway per participant totaled $81 worth of donated clothing! We also crowdfund on our social media platforms & we have raised a total of $2,725 for seven different individuals in need of hormones, housing, and other necessities.
Once every other month we do a crowdfunding campaign on behalf of an LGBT individual. We do this for various reasons including but not limited to:
-Food & Necessities
-Gender Affirming Surgeries
We currently have three chapters-one in Philadelphia, one in the suburbs of Philadelphia,and one in Orlando Florida! We pop up once a month at different locations in these areas to distribute free clothes,hygiene products,and other resources to our community.We are hosting occasional pop ups in other various areas on the east coast including New York & New Jersey.
