Gender Neutral Bathrooms
Chances Dances strongly believes that gender neutral bathrooms are an important aspect of creating safe spaces for queer people. Trans people, queer people, gender non-conforming people, and just plain everyone has the right to use restrooms without fear of harassment or violence. We work with our venues to make sure gender neutral bathrooms are always available at our events and would encourage other parties (as well as workplaces, organizations, restaurants, etc) to do the same.
Check out the signs we use to transform conventional bathrooms into gender-neutral ones below, or download a hi-res pdf and print it out to use at your own party/office/school/etc! [click on the image to download hi-res version]
Fabulous signs created for Chances Dances by the equally fabulous Garrett Hansell.
