It has announced that it will convert all its public restrooms into “all-gender” restrooms.
The move came after that incident in a Quezon City mall where a transgender woman was refused the use the female restroom by a clueless attendant.
In a statement issued through a spokesperson for SM, management said that it fully supports the LGBT community and will immediately institute a “free-for-all” restroom policy, one that will allow customers to use whichever restroom they are comfortable and fully identify with — male, female, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, etc. etc.
SM’s only request is for all restroom users to wash their hands after use.
