Using public toilets when you’re transgender or gender non-conforming can be stressful, and sometimes even result in harassment or violence.

When a person’s gender presentation confuses strangers, they will often build up a range of automatic behaviours designed to keep them safe when they feel vulnerable in public places.

This radio feature explores the feelings and experiences that go with using public bathrooms as a transgender person.

It uses a rhythmic, broken storytelling style to take the listener on a sonic journey through some of the anxieties and personal impact that gendered bathrooms have on trans and gender non-conforming people.
