As a trans person, are there private/ gender neutral public restrooms at City Hall if I wish to attend this event? It seems as if true progressive ideals have been lost in the conversation of growth, density, and real estate prospecting.

Thank you very much for the question. The City of Shoreline values all residents and protects the right of transgender individuals to use restrooms consistent with their gender identify, as stated in the WA Law Against Discrimination. While we do not currently have private or gender neutral public restrooms at City Hall, we encourage individuals to use whichever restroom is most consistent with their gender identity.
