Gender variant people face frequent harassment, discrimination and violence in public restrooms. Something as simple as trying to use a toilet can become a nightmarish ordeal, being forced to show ID, detained or even arrested. Some may not identify within the male / female binary and feel alienated in public bathrooms. This site offers a community-driven resource to allow people to locate safe bathrooms within their communities. Gender neutral and single stall bathrooms can benefit others as well: parents with children, those with access or mobility needs and those who desire extra privacy are a few who may benefit.
We offer this resource to support needs in the present and believe that through advocacy we can create wider adoption of gender free bathrooms, help to curb state-sanctioned and institutional violence through community organizing, education, and legal protections for gender identity.
