Eryn Brown staged a public boycott Saturday after he said he was denied entry to the women’s restroom at the McDonald’s on Broad Street near Boulevard several times in Richmond, Virginia. Brown is a transgender woman.
Brown said he does not feel safe using the men’s bathroom.
“That’s something that all transwomen face,” she said. “Violence and possibly getting raped.”
Brown had no comment about women not wanting him to use the women’s restroom.
