The General Services Administration will issue a bulletin this week clarifying that transgender people working in or visiting thousands of federally operated facilities be allowed to use restrooms in accordance with their gender identity.

For transgender federal employees and visitors to federal facilities, this rule signifies that they too are valuable and vital citizens, deserving of the same rights and protections as all Americans.

This is bigger than bathrooms – it is a win for equality and dignity.

Lambda Legal joins others in celebrating and applauding this key step forward.

As we continue our work to ensure that transgender people are granted equal access to public facilities, including restrooms and locker rooms, this guidance sends an important message to public officials at all levels of government: discrimination against transgender individuals has no place in America.
