Multnomah County Makes Gender Neutral Bathrooms Mandatory

0

by thepleasurechest

gender-neutral

Here’s great news for transgender equality. Multnomah County in Oregon has become one of the first in the country to require that gender neutral bathrooms be included in all new construction projects.  County board Chairman Jeff Cogen signed the executive order yesterday in the hopes that it will decrease stigma for transgender county employees and visitors when using public restrooms.

“Some folks have told us they literally have to wait and go home during the day to go to the bathroom,” he said. “Clearly, that is suffering no one should have to endure.”

The decision, which was timed to coincide with LGBT Pride month, has been praised by advocates for transgender equality, and signals a small, but important shift in the recognition of trans rights.

Mother’s Day Cards For Everybody

1

by thepleasurechest

mamasday

As you probably know, this coming Sunday is Mother’s Day. If you’ve scanned the “Mother’s Day” card selection at your local store, you might have noticed a lack of diversity. Hallmark hasn’t caught up with the rest of us. That’s why the folks at Strong Families designed these beautifully-illustrated, colorful and inclusive “Mama’s Day” e-cards.

Strong Families calls itself “a home for the 4 out of 5 people living in the US who do not live behind the picket fence—whose lives fall outside outdated notions of family, with a mom at home and a dad at work.” The organization supports families defining themselves “across generation, race, gender, immigration status, and sexuality.” Cool!

You can read more about their work and pick out a card for mom on their site.

The Trans 100

by thepleasurechest

trans100

Just over a week ago, trans folks and their allies marked the International Transgender Day of Visibility. Today, awareness of trans activism gets another big boost with the publication of the Trans 100, a diverse list featuring profiles of 100 trans folks making a difference in their communities.

The brainchild of We Happy Trans’ Jen Richards and Antonia D’orsay, executive director of This Is How, the Trans 100 represents an effort — which will hopefully be reflected across the LGBT community — to break down implicit (and explicit) transphobia in media coverage by highlighting the diversity of trans Americans.

We’re proud to see a few folks we know on this list and inspired by the many we have just learned about. See the whole list at Buzzfeed.
