The White House Now Has a Gender-Neutral Restroom
It appears that Obama administration is making boldly progressive moves to support the LGBT community during the President’s last term in office; today it was announced that a new gender-neutral bathroom was installed at the White House complex.
CNN reports that the restroom “is in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, next door to the West Wing, within the White House complex where many employees have meetings and offices. The White House now allows staff and guests to use restrooms consistent with their gender identity, including in the West Wing.”
This move is the latest from the Obama administration that attempts to provide protection and support for those in the LGBT community; earlier today, we reported that the President is supporting efforts to end conversation therapy for gay and trans youth. On Wednesday, an executive order to protect LGBT federal employees from discrimination went into effect.
