Gender Inclusive Restrooms

 

The LGBTQ Resource Center fully advocates Cal State Fullerton’s endeavor to create more accessible, all gender restrooms. A choice that is automatic for cisgender people requires careful thought and consideration for TGNC folx, as they may experience prejudice inside these restrooms for their perceived use of the “wrong” restroom. In a study conducted by the National Center for Transgender Equality (2015) of transgender Americans, 59% of respondents reported avoiding using a public restroom, and 24% had their presence challenged. Trans people are at risk in public for injustices such as these, all for the express purpose of using a restroom for a few minutes. We at the center believe that TGNC folx deserve the privilege to use restrooms in public without having to make a choice that invalidates their identity. All-gender restrooms achieve that purpose while deconstructing the gender binary at the same time.

 

The all-gender restrooms located on Cal State Fullerton’s campus are denoted by the symbol of a white triangle within a circle as pictured below.
