Gender-neutral bathrooms attracted attention after North Carolina issued its so-called bathroom bill requiring transgender people and everyone else to use the bathroom corresponding with their gender assignment rather than their gender identity. Though the state later repealed this requirement, others have similar anti-trans legislation in the works. While attending this year’s College Unions Poetry Slam Invitational, 19-year-old Julissa Emile tweeted a series of mirror selfies taken in a gender-neutral bathroom in Chicago, Buzzfeed News reports. The post, which quickly went viral, highlights the importance of allowing people the right to use the bathroom in which they feel comfortable.
