UGA Adds 'Gender-Neutral' Restrooms
Officials at the University of Georgia have designated a pair of "gender neutral" restrooms on campus, a change begun out of concern for transgender students but which they say will benefit others -- from students with disabilities and medical conditions to parents of young children. The single-stall restrooms are near the university's gay student support center, where leaders hope the trend will expand to other parts of campus.
