Topshop abolishes women-only changing rooms and makes ALL of them unisex — after pressure from transgender and gender-fluid customers

Topshop made all of its changing rooms gender-neutral this summer, but will not confirm if they are going to upgrade their curtained changing cubicles with lockable, doored cubicles.
Topshop recently made it official that their changing rooms are gender neutral, but writer and performer Travis Alabanza has alleged on Twitter that they were turned away when trying to try on clothes at a Topshop location in Manchester.
Topshop gave a statement to Buzzfeed News, confirming the existence of the policy, though they did not clarify when it was changed.
Alabanza claimed they "experienced transphobia" and cited the dangers that queer and transgender shoppers potentially face from other customers.
However, despite this being company policy, Alabanza was refused access to the changing room in the Topshop section of the store and was told to use the facility in the Topman section.
Maloney and Hartley-Brewer were responding to a recent controversy over Topshop allowing trans people to use their changing room of choice.
The thing is, apropos of the trans bathroom ban in SC, which saw people required to use the bathroom correlating with the sex on their birth certificate, even if they presented differently, gender-wise, people do get easily scared by the concept of trans and gender-nonconforming people's entry into certain spaces.

Topshop's spokesperson declined to say when the chain's all-gender changing room policy was implemented, or to provide details of how it was communicated to staff working on the shop floor.
"I was pretty pissed off", they told us.
This policy also applies to all 14 Topshop and Topman stores in Ireland.
However, a Topshop spokesperson has since told told Cosmopolitan UK: "All TOPSHOP TOPMAN customers are free to use any of the fitting rooms located within our stores".
While unarguably a bad situation, perhaps Alabanza's experience will highlight to other companies the need to go above and beyond simply changing their official line.
Alabanza said the experience had put a damper on the event they were shopping for, and even led them to consider dressing differently for it.
