Ever needed to go to the toilet and had to choose between JUST male or female? Why can’t we just go to the toilet and not worry about gender?!
We strongly believe that everyone, regardless of gender identification, presentation or ability has the right to access safe and dignified bathroom facilities without fear of harassment, judgement or violence.
As the Toilart website explains:
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.
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!
(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?).
