This McDonald’s In Seattle Won’t Tolerate Transgender Discrimination

“We believe all people must have access to safe and dignified bathroom facilities regardless of their gender identity or expression.”

A McDonald’s in Seattle, Washington posted this letter:

reddit.com / Via queerty.com

The letter reads:


We respect the rights of all customers and employees. We believe all people must have access to safe and dignified bathroom facilities regardless of their gender identity or expression. Therefore, the following policy has been adopted for this restaurant at 1530 3rd Avenue.

Employees and customers may use any restroom that corresponds with and is based upon the gender identity they publicly and exclusively assert or express.
We are committed to the principals (sic) of non-discrimination as provided by Washington Law.

Thank you

The letter, which only speaks for this particular franchise in Seattle, is dated from 2006, but it may have been re-posted, or simply attracted attention again, in light of the Arizona bathroom bill.

Arizona’s “bathroom bill”, passed last month, protects businesses from civil or criminal liability for discriminating against transgender people using their facilities.
