VCU Friendly Bathrooms List

This list is back and better than ever, thanks to VCU OMSA and yours truly, the VCU Department of Gender, Sexuality & Women’s Studies. 

A list of single-stall bathrooms on VCU campus that are safer and friendlier to transgender, intersex, and gender nonconforming people. If you click on the images, it gets a little larger. Or click here to view a larger, zoomable version of this list.

For more safer bathrooms near VCU campus or elsewhere, check out refuge restrooms, a bathroom-finder database created by former GSEXer, Teagan Widmer.

Our bathrooms, here in Crenshaw House are not accessible, but just to let folks know, our bathrooms are open to the public. We have one on the first floor towards the back of the hallway, along with a water fountain, and on the second floor, only accessible by stairs, is a very large single-stall bathroom. Under the sink in our first floor bathroom, there are tampons, sanitary napkins, and condoms free to anyone who needs them. No need to ask us!

Alexandra “Zan” Hailey, an English major and creative writing minor has been named one of the first two poets laureate of Prince William County, sharing the honor with #poet, author and high school English teacher Robert Scott. One of her pieces is below.
Around the Yellow House
The train passes—a heavy heart—beating down the tracks. 
A U-turning rickety pick-up,  matte black finish—brings dogs  to a bark across the block. 
Afternoon planes fly—streaking contrails  that connect cumulonimbus clouds. 
And a letter from an uncensored inmate  was left in my mailbox while I was out  walking a fuchsia petaled path,  where wild Dogwoods fade pink  with the gold of magnolias,   leaving a perfume alley trail.  A squirrel bats its tail like a duster  on a bookshelf—take in the day. 
Open it slow—pocketknife blade  soundly tearing a slit—“Dear Wonderful.”

@CNNmoney ranked Richmond #5 on its list of “10 Least Stressed Out Cities.” We like to think #RVA’s many urban hideouts including our very own oasis, the Pollak Building rooftop garden help ease some tension, too.
