The University of California will be designating restrooms for transgender students at its 10 campuses. The decision is part of an effort that school is making to become more friendly to the LGBT community. 

 

Charisma News reports that all of the single restrooms at the university will be converted to gender-neutral areas. 

 

Genny Beemyn, of the LGBT group Campus Pride said that the University of California is the first known university to make such a move. 

 

University of California President Janet Napolitano has also established a policy that allows transgender students to have the names that they wish to be called put in campus records, even before students legally change their names to reflect upon upon their gender identities.
