Why Restroom Signs Matter

Why Restroom Signs Matter

Recently, Colorado Youth Matter swapped out our old, binary and exclusive restroom signs and replaced them with these beautiful new and inclusive signs.

For many folks, using the restroom is just another thing you do and often don’t think twice about. For transgender, gender queer and gender non-conforming folks sometimes going to the restroom is not that simple or worse… not safe.

As an organization that values inclusion and non-discrimination, it’s important for us to take the steps necessary to ensure our office space is welcoming, safe and supportive of all our staff, youth council members, board members, volunteers and community partners.

This is one easy way we address transphobia. And you and your organization can too. We purchased our signs from a company called MyDoorSign as one of the few companies who make inclusive All Gender Restroom signs.

MyDoorSign often works with non-profits to give them free or discounted signs and they're currently offering All Gender Restroom Signs to non-profit organizations and schools through their partnership program.

"We started printing these signs in the last few months and have received an incredible response from our customers. These signs are an opportunity to promote tolerance in our communities and giving these away to non-profits is a great place to start." Said Alex Roitman, MyDoorSign's Outreach Manager.

If you're interested in partnering with MyDoorSign and getting your own gender inclusive signs, contact Alex via email, .
