Please sign this petition to get gender neutral toilets at the Napier University.

We want people to support us in our campaign, make people realise about transgender people are around us and they need the same support from the University as anyone else.



For that reason we claim gender neutral toilets.

Gender neutral toilet in the library of each campus minimum. Gender neutral toilets are not disable toilets, as they are designed for the comfortability of disable people, and being transgender it is not a disability.

A separate place where non-binary or transitional people feel safe and have not the social pressure of choice.

Gender neutral bathrooms promote safety. They cut down on anxiety and social pressure. They cut down on violence because people stand up to it. They cut down on vandalism because there’s less opportunity. They improve the provision of service, ensuring there are more places for “everyone” to pee, to get changed and to feel safe.

They send us a message “ You exist, you matter, you are welcome”.

Why is this important?

Unknown Territory is a project that attempts to raise an awareness campaign at the Napier University.

The awareness campaign is about support, education and promoting direct/indirect messages of tolerance and acceptance to everyone in an educational institution.

How it will be delivered

We would like encourage people to join us in the delivery of posters around the different campus of the University, collecting signatures and spread the word through social media, in person and with posters.

Edinburgh Napier University, Merchiston Campus, Colinton Road, Edinburgh, United Kingdom

On Friday 24th of February we had a meeting with Fiona F.A. to discuss the points of our campaign.

We have found that the University has noticed some of the equality and diversity gaps and we are waiting for the second meeting with staff of the University as we all want the Napier University be the first accessible University in Scotland for anyone to make them feel like at home.

Also, we are waiting for a second meeting with ENSA as they also want to be involved in the cause.
