I’ve just had my last meal at Babar in Woden, a place I used to frequent for a breakfast on the weekend.
I’m a male to female transgender and have been living as a female 24/7 for some number of years. Over these years I’ve been using Women’s toilets.
Today I was told by the owner (or manager, I don’t know which) of Babar that I wasn’t allowed to use the Women’s toilets.
I attempted to explain I was transgendered; but she told me that didn’t matter.
What’s curious is that ever since I’ve been going to Babar, when I’ve made use of their toilets I have always used Women’s toilets; and this woman (owner/manager) has been present some of those times.
I should note that I’ve never had a problem with any of the staff. They’ve always been friendly, helpful and efficient.
I’ll be writing Babar a formal letter of complaint at the least.
