Bathroom Procedures

April 10, 2024

The importance of having gender-safety in bathrooms was a central conversation in the inclusion module, where gender neutral bathrooms and providing ‘safe spaces’ for patrons needs to be reviewed for gender identity, offering additional signage in bathrooms, and the impact of using the ‘accessible’ disability bathrooms as a gender-neutral solution. Connections (as an LGBTQIA+ venue) was an invaluable asset to these discussions to explore how they manage and respond to patrons in gender neutral bathrooms. Building codes were identified as an area of possible future recommendations about requirements to provide gender neutral bathrooms for venues, and discussed whether it would be more effective to have ‘female’ and ‘gender neutral’ bathroom, removing the male-only bathroom.
