Gender Neutral Bathroom Law Is Now In Effect in Princeton
Its official! As of this week, Princeton's gender neutral bathroom law has taken effect. In July of 2019 the town officially passed the new ordinance "to ensure that its citizens and visitors are treated with dignity and freedom from discrimination."
According to Patch.com, from here on out all single stall bathrooms in all public places are legally required to be unisex or available to everyone regardless of sex or gender identity.
"The designation of unisex all-gender restroom facilities allows people to have greater access to toilet facilities consistent with their gender identity," the ordinance says. "All-gender restroom facilities benefit the entire community and provide universal access for families with young children, people with disabilities who rely upon personal care assistance from an attendant or family member, and seniors who require assistance."
In addition, the proper signage is not required as well in all single stall restrooms. There must be a sign posted outside of the restroom that lets people know it is designated for the use of anyone who needs to use it.
