Denotes that access is unrestricted by a person's sex or gender. This is an access tag following the same rules as those described in access=*, though the presence of this tag with a yes value necessarily implies a yes for all other gender-based access tags.


Use this tag in combination with other tags, most frequently in combination with amenity=toilets.


It's probably best to express this type of access as unisex=yes and let the implications take care of other sexes/genders since the number is not guaranteed to be exactly two across all cultures. It's also faster to tag in this way.

In some countries, some equipements are open to both genders, but not at the same time. Genders are alternating (some days open only to men, some days only for women). This occurs in Islamic countries (e.g. in Iran) for swimming pools in hotels (even the hotel personal serving the pool is alternating their gender). It is not always evident to tag restriction dates for either sex, this can change at any time, depending on reservations. The same restriction applies to males and females. See also Bathing.

unisex=alternating ??? Implies both: male=alternating and female=alternating

This tag may be further refined to remove the gender restriction for very young children (so that a parent can accompany their children, which cannot come alone; the gender restriction still applies to that parent or authorized accompanying adult).


A value of yes implies yes for all other gender-based access tags, but this can be overridden by adding more access role tags. In case of conflict, resolve in favour of more access.
