Founded in 2015, gc2b is a trans-owned company based in Maryland. gc2b's founder, CEO, and designer, Marli Washington, saw that the only binding options were uncomfortable and inadequate compression shirts designed for cis men. As a University of the Arts Industrial Design graduate, he used his experience in product design and his background in textiles to provide accessible, comfortable, and safe binding options designed by trans people, for trans people. gc2b binders were the first garments designed and patented specifically for gender-affirming chest binding.
Genderbands provides free binders to those in need. You can apply to the Genderbands binder program by clicking on the link below.
They accept donations of new or gently-used binders to support this program.
