The Lavender Door

The Lavender Door, a collaborative project provided by the Multicultural Center and Housing and Residence Life, seeks to provide all Ball State students with free and discreet access to gender affirming clothing.

How it Works

The Lavender Door is open by appointment only. Students can fill out the appointment form below and will receive a confirmation email with instructions from the Multicultural Center staff member who will accompany them for their appointment.

Our closet does not have any chest binders. You may visit Point of Pride here to get access to free chest binders. 

Student appointments available Spring 2024

Schedule An Appointment


All clothing in The Lavender Door is provided through donations. We are not currently accepting donations as our closet is full. Please check back on our website in the future to see when we will be accepting donations again.
