47% of all toilets in Government buildings are now gender neutral

Reference Number: PR162810, Press Release Issue Date: Dec 07, 2016
 
47% of all toilets within Government buildings are now gender neutral. This is a direct result of a policy introduced by Government earlier this year regarding gender neutral toilets.
 
These bathrooms may be found within all Government buildings, including Parliament, all Ministries and the Law Courts, and are accessible to all persons, 11% of which also cater for persons with disabilities.
 
Gender neutral toilets ensure privacy and eliminate discomfort for trans and gender variant persons, who often find themselves in uncomfortable situations when trying to access gender segregated toilets.
 
Furthermore, gender neutral spaces with, for example, nappy changing facilities within them are perfect for parents with babies or toddlers.
 
The aim of these toilets is to ensure a non-judgmental or exclusive environment for all.
