With new laws proposed throughout the United States and Canada that would ban transgender men and women from using the bathroom that represents their identified sex, the trans* community has launched a social-media campaign that shows the absurdity of the new laws. It began with one transwoman who began taking selfies in men’s restrooms. Brae Carnes, a Canadian, is protesting a proposed law that would ban her from using the women’s bathroom. “As a trans woman I’m not even safe from discrimination at the pub. What’s going to happen if I’m forced into a men’s change-room?” she wrote on Facebook. Using the hashtag #PlettPutMeHere, referring to the politician spearheading the bill, she hopes that everyday men and women can see, on a human level, what the bill will.

Her self-initiated campaign as inspired other transgender men and women to also take selfies in the ‘wrong’ bathroom.
