Yelp, your go-to source for finding the best bars, restaurants, and cafes around town, is offering a new way to filter results: by the presence of gender-neutral restrooms at nearby locations.
If you’ve never had to worry about the availability of a gender-neutral restroom, you may not have noticed Yelp’s latest feature, but the new filter further representing Yelp’s presence in the fight for transgender rights is making headlines. The aim of the new filter is to help people who are transgender find a safe bathroom to use.
If you’re an avid Yelper, take the time to help the company collect data on whether establishments have gender-neutral bathrooms available. You’ll help users find safe bathrooms, and you could be part of making Yelp the largest directory of trans-friendly restrooms.
