All-gender washrooms coming to more Toronto schools: TDSB

The Toronto District School Board says it intends to open all-gender washrooms in public schools across the city in a bid to create a more inclusive environment for students.

All-gender washrooms are ones that any student can use, regardless of gender identity.

Students say the washrooms make everyone feels safer.

“It’s kind of, like, normal now,” said Callum Robertson, a student at City View Alternative School, which has had the washrooms for several years.

The washrooms have been such as success that a group of students from the school is now visiting other schools to give presentations on the benefits of all-gender washrooms.

“The all-gender washroom is a place where any student, regardless of how they identify, can go,” said teacher David Stocker.

There are currently about 50 Toronto public schools with an all-gender washroom.  (more...)
