For the last 2 years, Point 5cc has become synonymous with showing pride and support for the transgender (and LGBT) community.
Some transgender people and those who love them purchase our shirts to show their pride in being a transgender or gender non-conforming person. Some folks buy shirts to show their support of family and friends. Others simply love the designs!
For far too many trans* people, support is critical -- wearing Point 5cc gear is one way folks feel that support.
We have always aimed to create high-quality, trans-inspired clothes that build community and support equality and awareness. Every shirt is screened to order, by hand, by creator Aydian Dowling. As a result of our quality and our message, the Point 5cc community is growing.
Point 5cc is ready to expand into a full clothing line. With your support, we will be in LGBT-friendly apparel stores across the United States, starting on the West Coast as soon as funds are raised.
As an expanded line, however, we will be able to help connect more LGBT and ally people through really awesome clothing!
Once we hit our $5,000 goal, you can expect to see men’s and women’s products including but not limited to snapback hats, hoodies, handcrafted jewelry for women and men, dress shirts, ties, women's tops, and – of course – t-shirts.
The money raised through Kickstarter will be utilized for:
- the cost of raw clothing materials (e.g. new types of higher-quality fabrics);
- new materials needed for production (e.g., screenprinting screens, inks);
- advertisement and promotion.
We will be working closely with boutiques and clothing stores to get our products on the shelves, and for our international customers, all of these new products will be available at www.point5cc.com.

Risks and challenges
Point 5cc’s main challenge will be creating relationships with stores and boutiques across the nation to ensure folks have access to the new apparel. In the rare event that Point 5cc is unable to sell its products in stores, the new line of clothes that results from this fundraising will still be available online at www.point5cc.com.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
