Look for our new posters in the bathrooms and on bulletin boards in the hallways!
Check out the original Free to Pee @ GBC campaign posters! These went up around three George Brown campuses in January 2013.
The campaign also included postcards, for GBC students to take away the message of washroom safety at their school. The postcards can be found below:
The text reads: Safe bathroom access is not a luxury or a special right. Without safe access to public bathrooms, trans & genderqueer people and people who don’t fit gender stereotypes are denied full participation in public life. For many of us, finding a safe place to use the bathroom is a daily struggle.
Trans & genderqueer people and people who don’t fit gender stereotypes report being harassed, attacked, or questioned by authorities while trying to use the bathroom; many avoid using public washrooms altogether, leading some to develop health problems. This is not equity. Everyone should be able to use a safe public bathroom so that they can pee in peace.
Making public washrooms safe for trans & genderqueer people and people who don’t fit gender stereotypes is not a separate problem from making washrooms safe and dignified for all people. We stand in solidarity with all those who experience barriers to accessing public washrooms — together, we can push for solutions that meet the needs of our community as a whole.
What would it take for all of us to be Free to Pee at GBC? For more information about the Free to Pee @ GBC campaign, including upcoming events, check out our website! freetopeegbc.com
