Should This School Get An All-Gender Locker Room?

Rob Shimshock | Education Reporter

A New York professor shared an initiative by an LGBTQ group Friday to install an all-gender locker room in their school’s fitness center.

Long Island University professor Sheila P. Vakharia shared Hofstra University’s queer and trans people of color coalition’s tweet urging students to sign a form if they supported the initiative.

“Are you a Hofstra student?” the group asked. “Do you like trans and gender nonconforming people? If so, fill out this quick form — it only takes a few minutes, and with your support we’ll be one step closer to getting an all-gender locker room in the Fitness Center!”

Their advertisement features a graphic displaying an individual looking at two bathroom doors. The female one is labeled “get yelled at” and the male one has subtext reading “get beat up.”

Hofstra’s queer and trans people of color coalition hosts discussions pertaining to the “intersectionality” of gender, race, and queerness and “address implicit and explicit biases.” (RELATED: Feminist Scholar Analyzes History Of Pelicans And ‘Racialized, Sexual Violence’)

The Daily Caller News Foundation reached out to Hofstra for comment but received none in time for press.
