The Toilet. film now available online!

We’re really excited to announce that our short animated film, The Toilet. is now available to view online! This follows screenings at various international locations including in Reykjavik, the Scottish Queer International Film Festival (SQIFF), Manchester Animation Festival and Together! Disability Film Festival.

The Toilet. is a quirky short animated film that explores the importance of the toilet in feeling comfortable and welcome in everyday life. It illustrates how inaccessible or unsafe toilets affect people in a range of ways, stopping some from leaving the house, and leading others to lose their jobs, or avoid food and drink, and taking day trips and holidays.

Through the stories of trans, Muslim and disabled people, we show how current toilet provisions prioritise some people’s needs at the expense of others. Toilet access is an important social and political issue and we need to fight for change.

We’d love for the film to be used by those campaigning for better toilet access. Let us know what you think either by email (aroundthetoilet@shu.ac.uk), or using the form at the bottom of our materials page.
