SALT LAKE CITY, July 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- With 40% of homeless youth identifying as LGBTQ+, TomboyX, (https://tomboyx.com/), has decided to take the first step in supporting them by gifting 50 pairs of their signature underwear, a value of approximately $1,200, to Volunteers of America Youth Resource Center in Salt Lake City. The majority of the TomboyX team identifies as LGBTQ+ and these staggering numbers concern the group as a whole. On the rise of a cultural movement with products that promote education and change, TomboyX has an agenda for individuals to feel comfortable in their bodies and underwear, regardless of where they fall on the size or gender spectrum.
"Supporting this program is important to the team at TomboyX because Volunteers of America have made an effort to support homeless LGBT youth," states CEO of TomboyX, Fran Dunaway. "We are committed to a more open and inclusive society, and supporting these youths is the first step in improving their homelessness situation."
In the hopes of representing underrepresented women, TomboyX is using this opportunity as a stepping stone to change. The plight of the young people really hit home for the team and they are committed to start a revolution. Volunteers of America goes to the people who need it most on the streets, bringing food and clothing while checking on their safety, to gain their trust and eventually have the homeless go to them. Building a relationship with these individuals is important to help them meet their basic needs. TomboyX providing their signature underwear to some of the youth is a way to further enhance their confidence for their future.
"We at TomboyX, believe that even with small donations, we can start making a positive impact on those who need it most," continues CEO of TomboyX, Fran Dunaway. "The end goal is to lower the homelessness rate for LGBTQ+; providing them with a pair of our signature underwear is a small contribution to this revolution."
Underneath, these youth are all people who deserve to be known, understood and accepted. TomboyX underwear and agenda targets this memo. TomboyX provides sizes between XS and 4XL, without altering the price for larger sizes and under ranges from briefs, 2.5" shorts, 4.5" trunks, 6" boxer briefs and 9" boxer briefs.

TomboyX believes that there is a little Tomboy in every woman, and their products are a means of embracing that truth and honoring that spirit; providing clothing that helps women feel comfortable in their own skin. The goal was and is to cater to women regardless of where they fall in size or gender spectrum.
