Trans-friendly signs placed on all public toilets in Vancouver

Vancouver has introduced trans-friendly toilet signs in all buildings run by the city government.

The third-biggest city in Canada, which has long been a supporter of LGBT rights, voted through a plan last year to make the west-coast location even more LGBT-friendly.

The signs, which will have a message reading “Trans People Welcome” rather than a symbol, are part of a strategy which also includes senior staff training and re-assessing the city’s grant priorities.

City Manager Sadhu Johnston said: “Everyone has the right to safe and inclusive washroom facilities. This change is another step forward towards ensuring equality and inclusion for all”. And he added: “We are committed to ensuring staff and citizens feel safe and welcome”.

Welcome to Mr. Trudeau's country!
