Athens Kroger offers unisex bathroom

A Kroger in Athens says its bathroom is non gender specific because dads have daughters, moms have sons and some in the LGBTQ community feel more comfortable without labels.

The acronym stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer or questioning.

The sign went viral on social media shortly after a customer posted it to Facebook. By Tuesday it had been shared more than 3,000 times.

“We have a unisex bathroom because sometimes gender specific toilets put others into uncomfortable situations,” the sign reads. “And since we have a lot of our friends coming to see us, we want to provide a place for our friends who are:

Dads with daughters

Moms with sons

Parents with disabled children

Those in the LGBTQ

Adults with aging parents who may be mentally or physically disabled

Thank you for helping us to provide a safe environment for everyone!”
