Note in Pizzeria’s Bathroom Goes Viral
A simple gesture of inclusion at Charlotte, North Carolina’s Pure Pizza struck a chord with people everywhere, especially parents. Owner Juli Ghazi placed a note in the pizzeria’s gender-neutral bathroom that explained, “We have a UniSex bathroom because sometimes gender-specific toilets put others into uncomfortable situations.” The gender-neutral bathroom provides “a safe environment for everyone,” including single dads with daughters, single moms with sons, parents with disabled children, the LGBTQ community and adults with aging disabled parents. When a customer took a photo of the note and posted it on Facebook, it went viral, earning coverage from USA Today, Fox News, ABC News, Today.com and the Huffington Post, to name a few outlets. Ghazi told TV station WCNC that she hoped the note would help people “find compassion rather than animosity.”
