Beijing introduces all-gender toilets

Since the program’s launch in late May more than 20 Beijing venues have introduced all-gender toilets

The program was initiated by Martin Yang, who works at Beijing Gender Health Education Institute (BGHEI).

The bathrooms have been introduced in bars, cafes as well as an international school and Beijing’s U.N. Women office.

Each establishment joining the program receives an ‘all gender toilet’ label for the door, certification from the program and is included on BGHEI’s digital map of trans-friendly places.

Adam’s, a prominent gay bar in Beijing’s trendy Sanlitun neighbourhood, was among one of the latest to adopt an all-gender lavatory.

Yang was prompted to act after a transgender friend was ejected from a women’s restroom. ”Our main goal with this project is to raise public awareness about gender diversity and equality issues,” Yang said.

Other LGBT activists in China have welcomed the move. There are signs that attitudes to transgender are changing in the country and reassignment surgery can be found in places like Shanghai. Traditional attitudes prevail, however, and transgender people are still diagnosed as mentally ill under the Chinese Classification of Mental Disorders.

this is interesting

just what will the minority of gay men into sex in public toilets do now?

and what will the few trans genders that like to make a fuss out of nothing have to moan about?

and those that demand to be allowed to be different (even tho we are all the same)

these minorities need to be listened to :)

Guess if it catches on with the people it's a good thing. I see no problem with using a toilet used by anyone. But if it does catch on, what will GTiLad complain about or poke fun at then?

You'll have to wait and see regards your last question, but would you really use a toilet after someone has defecated on the seat? Each to their own.

That means a long queue in the all gender toilet.
