Gender-Neutral Bathroom Bill Gives Philly Trans Folk Hope Single-occupant public restrooms in Philadelphia would have to be designated gender-neutral if a bill introduced Thursday before Philadelphia’s City Council becomes law, reports the city's Daily News. The proposed legislation reflects the views of top public officials like Valerie Jarrett, senior adviser to President Obama, who championed trans-inclusive accommodations in an April commentary penned for The Advocate the same month that the White House created its first gender-neutral bathroom. Philadelphia's bill is an effort to make good on promises set down in the LGBT equal rights law that Mayor Michael Nutter (pictured above) signed two years ago to fulfill his stated goal “for Philadelphia to be one of, if not the most, LGBT-friendly cities in the world and a leader on equality issues," according to a report in The Advocate. The newly introduced legislation does not apply to multiple-occupancy public bathrooms in the city.

How Wes Anderson Created the Aesthetic of a Generation No matter what part of the movie you happen to come in on, you can always tell when you’ve stepped into Wes Anderson’s cinematic world. The color schemes, the cinematography that pre-dates Instagram filters but looks nearly identical to a rich “Kelvin” in some scenes, the retro pastiches of archaic technology that you can never quite place in any one era. Add a handful of semi-aristocratic misfits and a soundtrack of Benjamin Britten concertos and LP b-sides and you’ve got everything from Bottle Rocket up through Anderson’s latest, The Grand Budapest Hotel. This assessment is in no way a dig at the prolific director and screenwriter. Some filmmakers morph their visions from project to project, creating very specific one-of-a-kind worlds with few repeating elements from other works. Anderson is more old Hollywood.

Level AnyBasicA1A2B1B2C1C2Advanced Selfridges’ Agender – too much concept, not enough access - WGSN/INSIDER elfridges’ much-anticipated, gender-neutral space Agender was unveiled in its London flagship last week but a quick visit over the weekend left us somewhat non-plussed. For a retail story that’s all about breaking open a new category and breaking down barriers the reality in store doesn’t fit the bill. The space is much more firmly at the concept end of the spectrum than the shoppable and even mildly accessible end. Bagged merchandise on the rails may have a visual impact but it makes the whole collection impenetrable, which is a shame, because when looking in the Oxford Street windows afterwards, there were plenty of items which caught mine (and my male companion’s) interest.

Nicola Formichetti, Hari Nef and Selfridges Take a Stance on Unisex Fashion The debate of whether "unisex" can ever be a bonafide category in fashionhas just intensified now that Selfridges and Nicola Formichetti's Nicopanda are in the game. The two powerhouses have teamed up for the launch of Selfridges Agender, a temporary space within the store designed by Faye Toogood, who has created retail spaces, installations and visual materials for brands like Comme des Garçons, Alexander McQueen, Opening Ceremony and Tom Dixon. The shop, which celebrated its opening with a party hosted by Formachetti on Wednesday, spans three floors of the department store and showcases a new take on the much talked about "gender neutral" category. Selfridges has tapped into some heavyweight talent to kick the whole thingoff. Of course, leading the charge is Formichetti's Nicopanda, a newunisex line he created during the rare downtime he gets from his post as creative director at Diesel: "I do Diesel all day long, but weeknights and weekends are Nicopanda time."
