A new app for the iPhone allows users to locate gender-neutral bathrooms using GPS location.
TranSquat uses the phone’s current GPS location to search, add and share nearby safe locations with other users. TranSquat was written by and for the trans community and is powered by data from safe2pee – a nationwide directory of gender neutral bathrooms.
Currently, there are 4000 locations across the U.S., Canada, and U.K. in the directory with more added daily.
“This app is useful for transgender and gender variant individuals because sometimes ﬁnding a safe, discreet and comfortable restroom can be a challenge and or safety issue depending on where one is in their own transition or geographic location,” Billy, the developer of the app said.
“The app itself is community driven. Users can help build it by downloading it and sharing safe locations from their own communities. In that sense, a user can download the app and build a network of safe locations no matter where in the world they reside.”
