Refuge Restrooms

Accessible washrooms can be hard to come by. For trans* folks finidng gender neutral bathrooms is extremely important and can be the difference between experiencing or avoiding violence. Previously, trans activists used Safe2Pee to find safe bathrooms.

Now, a new web app has come to offer trans* people more options for gender neutral washrooms. Refuge Restrooms allows folks to search by cities to find bathrooms that are accessible, gender neutral or both. The app isn't available for mobile devices yet but displays well on them. The app is open source and free, so spread the word! Add some bathrooms that you know are gender neutral in your city or help them out on GitHub.
