Chicago asks public to choose best restroom signs

ILLINOIS - Chicago would like the public’s help in choosing which signage to use on public restroom doors to indicate a non-marginalized single-stall enclosure.

The Chicago Restroom Access Project, or CRAP, together with the Pride Action Tank have created some designs that would be placed on restroom doors around the city to help trans and gender non-conforming people feel more comfortable when having to use a public restroom.

The Windy City Times reports that once the sign has been decided upon, they will be placed on businesses, schools, non-profits and government offices throughout Chicago.

People attending The Creating Change Conference at Chicago’s Hilton on January, 20 through 24, will have access to a paper survey of which they can submit to the University of Illinois at Chicago’s booth on the same day.

Others who will not be in attendance or would simply like to vote on a proposed design can visit the Pride Action Tank Facebook page .

A PDF questionnaire is also here and can be mailed to: Pride Action Tank, c/o AIDS Foundation of Chicago, 200 W. Jackson Blvd., #2100, Chicago, IL 60606.
