Accessibility at Gay City

Fragrance Free Policy

It is Gay City’s policy that smoking and use of fragrances are prohibited on Gay City premises, including all Gay City sponsored events and activities.

The health of some of our staff, volunteers, and clients may be harmed by exposure to cologne, perfume, or other fragrances – which may cause difficulty breathing, migraine headaches, flu-like symptoms and more. These symptoms are not always readily apparent and sometimes show up hours later or persist for days after an exposure.

Coming to Gay City having used fragranced products on your body or your clothing means that those who are sensitive are faced with the choice to stay and get sick or leave and be unable to access important services or do their job. We ask your help in making Gay City accessible to all by coming to Gay City fragrance free.


All restrooms in the building are gender-neutral.


Two bathrooms are available on this floor, however, the right restroom has 4.5 ft. by 5.5 ft. of non-obstructed clearance and grab bars on two sides of the toilet.


The two bathrooms are accessible with a numeric code. Please see a Gay City staff member or volunteer in the Wellness Center. Remember to knock before entering.

The restroom at the end of the hall has a door that opens outward and a 4 feet by 5 feet unobstructed clearance for individuals seeking a more accessible space.


Fragrance is any scent that is perceptible by others. This includes hair products, lotions, detergents, colognes, perfumes, and aftershave products.

Smoking/Vaping includes the lighting and use of any tobacco products (e.g. cigarettes, cigars, hookahs), marijuana/THC/CBD, electronic smoking devices (e.g. e-cigarettes, e-cigars, e-pipes) containing nicotine cartridges.
