Auckland Grammar builds gender neutral bathrooms

Auckland Grammar – an Auckland boys’ schools – built a new unisex toilet block to cater for transgender students in the future as it moves to gaining the Rainbow Tick.

Headmaster Tim O’Connor speaking on Newstalk ZB said the concept came about when school officials realised young men want more privacy in school and public toilets.

“We responded to that, but also in the back of our mind has been diversity, and the reality, that at some point in the future we will have students who identify themselves as transgender or in the LGBT community.”
