Next Frontier in LGBT Marketing?

Next Frontier in LGBT Marketing? | PinkieB.com | Gay and Lesbian Life | Scoop.it
As trans visibility increases, more companies are becoming aware of the unique challenges faced by trans men and women when it comes to choosing garments that reflect their gender identity. For trans people who haven’t begun the surgery process, finding underwear to tuck and bind can be a major hurdle: many of the options available are uncomfortable, ugly, or even unhealthy to wear for extended periods of time.

With several businesses already popping up to provide options for trans underwear, it’s clear that this segment of LGBT marketing and retail is set to see some major growth in the coming years.
