In light of recent “Bathroom Bill” legislation in North Carolina and in a show of solidarity with the LGBTQ members of our community, we’ve taken down our old restroom signage in favor of new signage with gender-neutral language and images. We feel that HB2 opposes our values of social justice, human rights, and safe and welcoming communities. This is a bill that endangers the lives of trans, genderqueer, and all people whose gender identity doesn’t precisely match the expectations of what is on their birth certificate. That is something that we want to protest loudly and with all of our might.
