Trash Prince is a Toronto based, independently owned clothing brand.
This brand’s origin story starts with a simple doodle and a dream to create graphics for clothing that allow folks to dress and express themselves without having to hear the old familiar refrain, “that isn’t for *insert gender here*.”
Late one night while drawing and feeling rather “thrown away” in my romantic life I doodled the word trash. It seemed so harsh to view myself this way, I wanted to pick myself up like a noble knight in battle. I chose the word Prince because I never saw myself as a Princess.
My hope for Trash Prince is to create a space and brand that allows those that fall outside or in-between the gender binary to find solace and know you are loved just as you are for who you are.
When you make a purchase with Trash Prince you aren’t just supporting a small LGBTQ+ business you are also helping to support the community as 15% of all profits is donated to a chosen funding partner. So go on and sport some sweet gear and help your brothers, sisters, and the rest of the family out!
Trash Prince: A name of endearment and hope.

Giselle has always been artistic, giving, and loving. With an educational background in Visual and Digital Arts as well as Graphic Design studies they found that marrying passion, community, and philanthropy was a natural course of action. Finding their gender identity was and still is a journey. Giselle actively works to make Trash Prince a positive space for the questioning/exploring/ and those struggling to suss out their gender identities to find others working through the same. No one should have to travel this road alone.
