Victoria | Australia | International | Resources to help

Click to view the list of local, national and international gender neutral toilets!This shouldn’t be so hard!

If you’re gender-questioning, genderqueer or trans, you can risk ridicule, abuse and even violence just for the sake of needing to go to the toilet.

We’ve done some work to find maps of places you can go to find peace and take care of what you need to do!

Exceloo gender neutral toilets

Automated Public Toilet Solutions | Exeloo Locations | Exeloo.

Gender Spectrum – by Rose Moore

We all need to pee!

Exceloo is an automated public toilet which has been installed all around Australia.

They are designed to be accessible and are totally gender-neutral toilets.

While we don’t have any affiliation with the company, we do think that a toilet doesn’t need to have a gender, and Exceloo seems to have this attitude too (either deliberately or accidentally)!

About Toilart

The ToilArt Project is dedicated to mapping gender neutral, unisex and accessible toilets and bathrooms around the city (with the possibility of extending our map in the future). We also collaborate with artists from around Melbourne to help raise awareness about bathroom safety and accessibility in creative and entertaining ways.

Toilart was a project of the Trans Melbourne Gender Project.

From January 2014, Genderqueer Australia has taken-on maintenance of the Toilart map. Thanks go to the original Toilart team for their hard work on the project!

web: safe2pee gender neutral toilet finder

safe2pee website

How it can help

Safe2Pee is a web-based location service for gender neutral toilets.

It has a few Australian toilets, but you can add ones you find through their site.

The advantage for Australian peeps is that there is an iPhone app which uses the data from this site to point you in the direction of safe toilets.

We’re adding gender neutral toilets as we find them and suggest you do too!

About safe2pee

(from the website)

The goal of the project is to create a resource where people who do not feel comfortable with traditional public restrooms can find safe alternatives, and to support advocacy and research to further the cause of gender free, inclusive bathrooms. The service aims to be accessible from a variety of mediums (computer, cell phone browser, maybe even a call-in number?).
