We are compiling a list of gender neutral public restrooms in and around the Twin Cities.

For many transgender people, these restrooms (sometimes labelled "unisex" or "family") are the safest option.

Here's our list to date -- it is always growing, so be sure to check back. If you have suggestions for public restrooms to add to the list, please contact us with the information.
