@zigg One cool thing I saw is that I learned that there was a gender-neutral bathroom at a conference in the program leaflet they gave at the inscription. An indication on the building map would have been useful.
And a clear signage on the door – in the end I never found this bathroom
@Yulran Yesssss, that sounds like the kind of experience we do not need heh
@zigg I’m generally satisfied with a rebranded disabled toilet. But complete gender neutral toilets work better I think. The rebrand is the path of least resistance tho.
@moiety Yeah. And maybe the only option when you’re renting a venue. 🤔
@zigg well you could also rebrand the men/women rooms to be gender neutral of course. But doing so for the disabled toilet is a bit easier/less controversial.
@moiety I thought I’d heard something somewhere about it being important to keep a women’s room for trans + cis women
@zigg any reason that wouldn’t apply to (trans) men?
@moiety I don’t know what the assertion was about. I want to say of course not.
But it seemed like it was important to protect against cis men? But these are the sorts of things I get anxious about tbh, not really understanding everyone’s needs.
Wish I could remember where I saw it.
@zigg not a tech conference, but when I went to ConFusion a couple years ago they'd designaned the bathrooms as gender neutral. might be worth reaching out to them on twitter? @ConFusionMI@twitter.com
maybe ask someone that worked on xoxo this year? The bathrooms were not gender neutral afaik, unless i missed that, but they i thought they managed things well. But that conference absolutely sets the bar in my mind.
@annika is I think the admin of the xoxo instance, maybe she can put you in touch with someone(?)
