For any LGBTQ+ individuals and allies, I believe REFUGErestrooms is one of the most important apps we can have on our phones. I make sure to register all restrooms I find. It’s important that our Trans and gender non-conforming friends and family have a safe place to use the facilities.

Whenever I have to navigate spaces like airports and restaurants and rest stops, I’m forced to contend with gendered restrooms. I’ll sometimes open the Refuge app just to be reminded that there have been other trans and gender-nonconforming people where I am, that I am not totally alone.

I had previously seen Trader Joe’s on Refuge. I wondered if there was a Trader Joe’s nearby. Indeed, only a little off the highway, I found one. Inside, to the back, was a row of a single-use restrooms. I cannot tell you the relief. And I opened the app and added the datapoint of this restroom, for anyone else who might need it.
