Our Story

Point of Pride was founded by the leadership of Point 5cc, a clothing and apparel company by and for trans folks.

Since the company began in 2011, Point 5cc has donated 20% of proceeds of every order to an Annual Transgender Surgery Fund. As the program grew, we received hundreds of applications each year, and awarded thousands of dollars of direct financial assistance to trans people in need of support. At the same time, we began one of the largest international chest binder donation programs.

That’s why we formed Point of Pride in 2016—an independent sister non-profit organization with a dedicated team working to grow our fundraising efforts. In this way, we are able to help more members of our trans community, and speak out for the need for inclusive and supportive changes in our society.
