New iPhone app locates gender-neutral bathrooms


TranSquat is a gender neutral bathroom finder for iPhone users that locates bathrooms that are gender free relative to the users current location. It 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. There are currently close to 4,000 locations across the United States, Canada and the U.K. with more locations being added everyday. Locations do include Tennessee, Kentucky and Alabama according to a TranSquat representative.

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.

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. TranSquat can currently be downloaded from the Apple App Store by clicking here and purchasing for $2.99.
