YUNGBLUD on having gender-neutral facilities on UK tour: “It was really important to me”
YUNGBLUD has revealed that he requested gender-neutral facilities at every date of his current UK Life On Mars Tour – and when one venue seemingly didn’t comply, he called them out for it.
In a video on Twitter, the musician – real name Dominic Harrison – explains to camera: “It was really important to me that there would be gender-neutral facilities on this tour.
“I know how hard it is for non-binary people at gigs sometimes, like going to the toilet and stuff, so that’s happening.”
Before last night’s show, however, YUNGBLUD told the venue to get out of “the dark ages” for not having those facilities.
When at the venue, the 24-year-old filmed himself in front of a sign reading Gender Neutral Toilets, putting his finger to his lips and whispering, “Shhh!”, suggesting that it was put up by him.
“If the council have got a fucking problem with it, talk to me,” YUNGBLUD added.
The caption of the video read: “I WILL TRY MY BEST THAT EVERY YB SHOW TILL THE END OF TIME HAS GENDER NEUTRAL FACILITIES!”
YUNGBLUD will be taking his Life On Mars tour to North America early next year with support from Palaye Royale, Charlotte Sands, poutyface and UPSAHL.
