Why we need gender-neutral bathrooms | Ivan Coyote,TED Talk

Here is a very moving twelve minute talk by Ivan Coyote, who not only does a great job at putting up the argument of why gender-neutral bathrooms are required, but does so from the heart, and in my opinion, is able to connect into a wider problem that goes beyond the issue of gender specific toilets and change rooms.

YouTube Description: "There are a few things that we all need: fresh air, water, food, shelter, love ... and a safe place to pee. For trans people who don't fit neatly into the gender binary, public restrooms are a major source of anxiety and the place where they are most likely to be questioned or harassed. In this poetically rhythmic talk, Ivan Coyote grapples with complex and intensely personal issues of gender identity and highlights the need for gender-neutral bathrooms in all public places."
