To our knowledge, this was the first-panel discussion in the world to take place next to a public bathroom door. For the launch of the Toilet zine we invited these architects: Jesse Verdoes, Takuma Johnson, Tuyen Le  and Noam from Bebe Books.

We talked about queering the architectural infrastructure of segregation, namely binary bathrooms at gender-neutral bathroom of Viernulvier Gent
