New, permanent restroom signage

Equality UUCF would like everyone to notice the new, permanent restroom signage. The multi-person restrooms in the Sanctuary and Program Building are marked “Men’s Restroom” or “Women’s Restroom” but they also say “All are welcome to use the restroom that best fits their identity.” And, “Single occupancy restrooms are available in the basement of the Administrative Building.” These permanent signs acknowledge our understanding that gender is not binary or outwardly obvious, and they affirm UUCF’s desire for all members, friends and visitors to be welcome and comfortable here. Email questions or comments to equality@uucf.org. Thanks.
