Aliens just please wash hands


The tiny town of Dunedin in the south of New Zealand is becoming a leader in accepting non-binary gender identities.

Just a week after a school made its uniform options gender neutral, the local theatre has made its restrooms open to all identities with a pretty novel sign.

Underneath the alien were the instructions, ‘whatever, just please wash your hands’.

The sign was the brainchild of theatre director Sarah Anderson, and it was installed to help people to feel more comfortable and safe.

‘It takes any anxiety away for people who might feel pressured into going into toilets specified for one gender, or another, when they don’t necessarily relate to that gender", she said.
