UGA designates gender-neutral restrooms



Two single stall restrooms located next to the UGA campus LGBT Resource Center lost their male and female sex designations, and are now simply designated as “restrooms.” The move comes as part of a plan to provide a “comfortable” restroom alternative for transgender students and faculty, according Michael Shutt, the LGBT Center’s assistant dean of students.

“One of the places that a lot of issues come up around folks who are transgender comes down to the restrooms,” Shutt said. “One way that we can create a very safe environment for those people is within the restroom environment.”
