MURRAY, Ky. (AP) -- Murray State University has designated three single-person restrooms as gender neutral restrooms available to any person regardless of gender identity or expression.
The Lesbian, Bisexual, Gay and Transgender program coordinator at the school, Jody Cofer Randall, says these restrooms are important to a segment of the university population.
Randall told the Murray Ledger & Times (http://bit.ly/1yPsddg ) that it's "an indisputable fact" that transgender and gender non-conforming students attend Murray State.
Last September, the Student Government Association passed a resolution for LGBT equality that called for gender neutral bathrooms and other policy changes.
The university updated its policy regarding preferred first-name choices and promotion of diversity and tuition waivers for spouses and partners of university employees shortly after the resolution passed.
