How do we allow transgender people to use public facilities, while maintaining a safe environment for women and children? To be honest, it’s a simple answer... unisex bathroom and shower trailer units.

North Carolina is drawing national attention after passing House Bill 2 (HB2), which some are calling the “Bathroom Bill.” A direct response to block Charlotte, North Carolina’s ordinance expanding antidiscrimination laws to places of public accommodation, the southern state is under fire from LGBT activists, celebrities, Fortune 500 companies, and more. Located in Charlotte, Portable Restroom Trailers, LLC aims to provide a sensible solution for both sides of the argument. They are expanding their inventory of unisex bathroom and shower trailer units and are embarking on a marketing campaign to educate customers on the individual privacy and safety these units provide.

“It’s amazing to see how much controversy our state has sparked recently,” says Portable Restroom Trailers, LLC’s Operations Manager, Teri Pahon. “While much of the media coverage has been focused on Charlotte’s local ordinance and North Carolina’s response, this is a conversation that’s occurring in cities around the country; we hear it every day from customers. How do we allow transgender people to use public facilities, while maintaining a safe environment for women and children? To be honest, it’s a simple answer−and we want to make sure municipalities, venue locations, and other organizations know about the options available to them. We have a wide selection of unisex bathroom and shower trailer units that feature private stalls for men, women, or transgender persons. They can be used as a permanent solution or a temporary facility and they are truly the most cost effective way to appease both sides of the debate while offering clean, sanitary facilities to all. We are working hard to get the word out and foster a conversation that educates people there is already a solution available that bridges the gap.”

While many are referring to NC HB2 as the Bathroom Bill, the legislation affects more than just restroom facilities. In fact, it’s become such a big deal, a federal lawsuit has been filed challenging the constitutionality of the law. North Carolina is losing revenue fast as national corporations, musicians, and others pull out of the state in protest. PayPal made news on April 5, 2016 by halting plans to build a new global operations center in Charlotte that would have created 400 new jobs. Conferences are cancelling left and right, prompting the North Carolina Tourism Board to reach out to them personally. And most recently, Bruce Springsteen cancelled a concert in Greensboro on April 8, 2016. Things have gotten so bad, Governor McCory has tried to backtrack on the legislation-but refuses to budget on the transgender bathroom argument.

Portable Restroom Trailers, LLC is responding to the debate with education. The national provider of portable restroom trailers and shower trailers is embarking on a new marketing campaign to raise awareness about unisex bathrooms and unisex shower trailers. These products offer a thoughtful solution to the problem by providing private stalls that are all inclusive to everyone.

Unisex bathroom and shower trailer units are also an ideal option because they can be used as a temporary facility or a permanent solution. This is particularly important for municipalities or locations that need to move restrooms from place to place or those that just want something short-term until lawmakers can come to an agreement. Portable Restroom Trailers is planning to raise awareness of their unisex facilities and foster an open conversation about transgender bathrooms through social media, blogging, and other content development.

About North Carolina House Bill 2 and the Bathroom Bill History:

The most recent conversation regarding transgender people and public restrooms started up after February 22, 2016, when Charlotte, North Carolina passed a city-wide ordinance expanding the state’s antidiscrimination laws so that LGBT people would also be granted protection in places of “public accommodation.” Set to go into effect on April 1, 2016, part of the ordinance would allow transgender people to use bathrooms of the gender they identify as.

In direct response, North Carolina’s General Assembly proposed and passed House Bill 2 (HB2) at a special session on March 23, 2015. Also known as the “bathroom bill”, Gov. Pat McCrory signed the bill into law the same day. Under North Carolina House Bill 2, Charlotte’s ordinance was repealed. In effect, HB2 made the state law on antidiscrimination the final word. This meant it only protected from discrimination based on “race, religion, national origin, color, age, biological sex and handicaps.” Cities and local governments were blocked from expanding “employment” or “public accommodations” protections to others.
