The University of Pittsburgh has called allegations that it discriminates against transgender students unsubstantiated.
Pitt filed a motion last week to dismiss a complaint filed April 25 by the Rainbow Alliance, an organization which advocates for what it describes as the interests of the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered, queer and allied community at Pitt. The complaint accused the university of unfairly targeting transgender students in its policies regarding dorm, locker room and bathroom use. But the university’s response said the complaint failed to identify a single student who had been adversely affected by university policy.
“The complaint does not identify any actual instance of alleged discrimination or any actual alleged harm incurred by any member of the university community,” the motion said.
