Description

The OSM community has not settled on the meaning of unisex=*.

As of April 2018, the meaning of unisex=yes is unclear, with 3 incompatible tagging schemes in use:

  1. unisex=yes always means a gender neutral, gender segregated toilets should be tagged unisex=no+female=yes+male=yes. male=yes+female=yes cannot be replaced with unisex=yes
  2. unisex=yes is a shorthand for male=yes+female=yes, and can be used for a unisex, gender neutral facilities, or one with separated female & male sections, and if you see something tagged female=yes+male=yes, you can replace them with unisex=yes.
  3. unisex=yes indicates an entrance/area which is available to all. Family toilets can contain this tag.

This is an access tag following the same rules as those described in access=*.

Usage

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

amenity=toilets
unisex=yes

unisex=alternating

In some countries, some facilities 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).

Implications

In case of conflict with other gender-based tags (e.g. female=*), resolve in favour of the more specific tag.
