Restaurant marks restrooms with ‘before’ and ‘after’ photos of Caitlyn Jenner

A Texas restaurant has designated gender for its restrooms with “before” and “after” photos of Caitlyn Jenner’s transition.

At Dodie’s Place in Allen, Texas, the men’s restroom has a photo of Jenner pre-transition participating in the Olympic games on the door. The women’s restroom has a photo of Jenner’s post-transition Vogue cover.

The Dallas Morning News Editor Dom DiFurio spotted the photos and posted them on social media.

DiFurio told the Daily Dot that the restaurant’s location isn’t LGBT friendly.

“Collin County, where Allen, Texas is, as a whole is considered a conservative bastion in North Texas,” DiFurio says. “I wouldn’t consider it a particularly great place to be LGBTQ.”

DiFurio was still shocked to see the photos on display.

“I saw it as a bit of a physical manifestation of the wink and nod jokes told often to me when I see people from that part of town,” DiFurio told the Daily Dot. “The kind of jokes where you feel like the person telling the joke wants you to laugh to verify their inclinations, but doing so would perpetuate a terrible environment for anyone in the LGBTQ community.”
