“The fourth issue of d-act magazine is about Queerlet, which is a toilet sign and design research tool for gender-neutral toilets.
I believe that design is one of the most effective action to save myself. I'm queer, and the binary toilets are an issue for me. Considering this, this was the most obvious thing that I could do to make my life a bit better.”

Toilet sign that enables users to draw their own human figures based on their gender identity
A blue man in pants and red woman in a skirt, these are the most typical human figures that are in the toilet signs around us.
That gender-binary standard excludes numerous people such as LGBTQIAP+. Therefore, gender-neutral toilets emerged as a social movement, and we're in need of new toilet signs for it.
Queerlet is a toilet sign that enables users to draw their own human figures based on their gender identity. The toilet sign itself only has a vague silhouette of a human to let the user fill and specify it as they want. It can be erased and drawn over and over with a board marker.
It's currently being used in several local public toilets.
