Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, is set to unveil a new plan this week which will call for the construction of more gender-neutral toilets across the Capital for transgendered and ‘non-binary people’.
Khan’s blueprint for London will call on shops, leisure facilities and public areas to install gender-neutral toilets to “reflect the diversity of the city”.
He is quoted in The Guardian, saying: “I have vowed to be a Mayor for all Londoners so I am determined to ensure that everyone has the ability to enjoy our great city to its fullest…
/We need a range of toilets that reflect the incredible diversity of this city…
/LGBT charity Stonewall welcomed the move…
“But this move isn’t just practical, it’s symbolic. By introducing gender-neutral toilets, planners can show that London is a city that cherishes its diverse population.”
Last week, a college at Oxford University voted down a motion to make toilets gender-neutral over fears it would make women feel uncomfortable and could lead to more cases of harassment.
Perhaps weak Sadiq should spend less time on vanity projects and more on keeping jihadis out of the capital!
