Glass Washrooms

Glass Washrooms is a deeply moving and personal account of NIUBOI's life growing up, coming out, and living now as trans non-binary.


Visibility in public spaces can be unnerving for gender non-conforming humans, but NIUBOI chooses to be neither passing nor quiet. Glass Washrooms combines storytelling, site generic theatre, and dance to make public the private transformation a meek young girl into a strong, powerful androgyne. Glass Washrooms will encourage the audience to think about the need for gender inclusive washrooms, see trans people as relatable and human, and celebrate non-binary identities.
