“It’s a perfect, all-inclusive symbol for everyone.”
After months of discussing how best to shift their restrooms from gendered spaces into gender-neutral ones, the owners of Myers + Chang in Boston decided to codify their restrooms with the symbol famously used by the late pop star, Prince.
The crew at the restaurant, who are all self-proclaimed Prince fans, came up with the idea shortly after the singer died this past April. They’d previously discussed labeling their restrooms as “Anyone” or “Everyone,” but said that when the restaurant’s general manager, Kristi McNeil, suggested they use the Prince symbol instead, it seemed like a perfect fit.
The perfect solution to bathroom signage: Use the Prince symbol
Make no mistake: The crew at Christopher Myers and Joanne Chang’s Asian diner are huge Prince fans. Fittingly, the idea to switch out an “M” and “W” to indicate their men’s and women’s bathrooms took root shortly after the star died in April.
