SOMArts Gender Neutral Bathroom Policy
In keeping with SOMArts' commitment to nondiscrimination, we have decided to convert all of our restrooms into gender-neutral restrooms. SOMArts Cultural Center strives to create and sustain an environment that supports and values all members of our community, including visitors. One aspect of creating an inclusive environment is providing safe, accessible, and convenient restroom facilities. Many people may experience difficulty and inconvenience when required to use gender-specific restrooms. Parents with children of a different gender are not able to accompany their children into a gender-specific restroom and the same holds true for others with attendants/caregivers of a different gender. Additionally, transgender individuals may be subject to harassment or violence when using male- or female-specific restrooms.

We understand that for people who are used to using gender-specific bathrooms, using gender neutral bathrooms may feel strange. Social change that increases access for an excluded group often requires changes that can make people who have not been negatively affected by the existing arrangements feel uncomfortable. 

Additional Information
