BART reopened restrooms at its Powell Street Station in downtown San Francisco February 2. The restrooms at all of BART's underground stations have been closed since shortly after the 9/11 terrorist attacks in 2001.
From left, lesbian BART President Rebecca Saltzman, BART Director John McPartland, gay state Senator Scott Wiener, BART General Manager Bob Powers, gay BART Director Bevan Dufty, and queer BART Vice President Janice Li marked the event with toilet paper ribbon cutting. (Gay activist Michael Petrelis was also on hand.
Dufty said that Petrelis attended because he campaigned on reopening the restrooms when he ran against Dufty in 2016 and 2020.
