Lucia Blake started this petition to Sadiq Khan (Mayor of London) and

 Wagamama recently announced that they are making all of their bathrooms gender neutral in support of London Trans Pride and have declared that at least 40% of their bathrooms will be by our event on September 14th.

We are urging ALL restaurants, bars, museums, train stations and public spaces to follow in the footsteps of Wagamama, and make their bathrooms accessible to people of all gender identities. We are not trying to erase binary bathrooms, as we know that women's bathrooms can be necessary for safety, but we do need to be providing gender neutral bathrooms that are accessible to non-binary, trans, intersex and gender non-conforming people.

For trans+ people, entering a public bathroom can be a horrific experience. We are often persecuted no matter which bathroom we enter, we can enter the women's toilets and be shamed, humiliated and demonized. We enter the men's toilets and are often faced with aggression, misogyny, violence and sexual assault. 

We should also NOT be forcing non-binary people to choose a gender every time they need to use a bathroom.

It's 2019 and times are changing, more and more young people are embracing their trans+ identities and need to be able to enter social spaces without experiencing deep anxiety about something as simple as going to a toilet.
