Colleges are often the place movements for social change start. Now, the transformation is coming to bathrooms.
Portland State University said in late May that it would convert one multi-stall women’s restroom on campus to a gender-neutral designation.
The move was designed to support transgender students.
Though there already are gender-neutral single-stall restrooms on campus, this restroom, on the fourth floor of Smith Memorial Student Union next to the Queer Resource Center, can be used simultaneously by people of different genders.
