As with the rest of Yelp’s features, the new option is crowdsourced and may take time to deliver the most accurate results

In the past year, 59 percent of transgender adults in America have avoided using public restrooms, according to a survey from the National Center for Transgender Equality.

Through Yelp, you can filter restaurant locations by price, outdoor seating, and even by PokéStops nearby. Now the company has added a new feature that allows users to search locations based on the availability of gender-neutral bathrooms.

The new feature launched shortly after the Trump administration rescinded protective guidelines for transgender students that allowed them to use bathrooms that correspond with their gender identity, The New York Times reported.

“This isn’t the first time that we’ve spoken out about social issues, but this is the first time that we have married doing something on our platform around the social justice support of the LGBTQ community,” Rachel Williams, who leads diversity and inclusion efforts at Yelp, told The New York Times.

Last week, Yelp also joined 52 other tech companies in signing a Supreme Court amicus brief to support Gavin Grimm, a transgender boy who filed a lawsuit against his school for denying him the use of the boys’ bathroom, according to Tech Crunch.

Additional resources to find safe, gender-neutral restroom access include the websites Refuge Restrooms and Safe Bathrooms Club.


Yelp Will Label Businesses Accused Of Racist Behavior

Yelp announced a new initiative on Thursday to label businesses that users have reported for racist behavior.

In what the company calls a "firm stance against racism," the review site Yelp will warn consumers when a business has been reported for racist behavior.

The company said it would only add this alert to a business page "when there's resounding evidence of egregious, racist actions from a business owner or employee."

This will include behavior such as "using overtly racist slurs or symbols."

"As the nation reckons with issues of systemic racism, we've seen in the last few months that there is a clear need to warn consumers about businesses associated with egregious, racially-charged actions to help people make more informed spending decisions," the San Francisco-based company said in a Thursday statement.

On social media, the announcement prompted some praise, but also skepticism from users who questioned how the initiative would be enforced.

The company said the alert will require a news article from a "credible media outlet." A link to the article will accompany the notice, and it will appear over the reviews until dismissed.

"Incidents that warrant this escalated alert are extremely rare," a Yelp spokesperson told NPR.

The Law Office of Aaron M Schlossberg in New York was one of the first businesses for which the alert was used. Schlossberg went viral in 2018 after shouting a racist rant at employees at a Manhattan restaurant for speaking Spanish. He later apologized.
