I’m sure many of you know about Trump’s revocation of the Obama administration’s federal protections for Trans* people’s right to use whichever bathroom they want, in accordance with their gender identity. However, as the video from the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) explains, Trans* people remain protected under civil rights law and there is actually a really important case about this coming up before the Supreme Court in about a month.
I am proud to say that BMCC respects the rights of Trans* people; recently signs have been put up in the bathrooms in Fiterman Hall saying that everyone is free to use the bathroom associated with their gender identity. 🙂
