During winter break, the Campus Y designated its bathrooms as gender-neutral.
This step toward converting bathrooms to being gender-neutral was as simple as changing the sign on the door. Similar single-use bathrooms around campus should adopt these signs in order to promote acceptance throughout UNC.
For Tar Heels identifying as transgender, such a sign not only denotes their inclusion, but symbolizes social progress.
The Campus Y began its gender-neutral bathroom policy in earnest last year with mere sheets of paper as signage.
Little backlash was received initially, and after official signs were implemented this year, student Y-members have reported only positive feedback.
