Boynton Beach will become the first city in the county to designate all of itssingle-occupancy restrooms in all city-owned properties asgender-neutral.

"BoyntonBeach will be the first municipality in Palm Beach County to have gender-neutral restrooms in all municipal properties,"BoyntonBeach City Commissioner Ty Penserga, a gay man, said in a press release.

Earlier this year West Palm Beach designated the single-occupancy restrooms in its City Hall gender-neutral but that policy hasnt gone city-wide yet.

Palm Beach County Human Rights Council President Rand Hoch said in a press release, Transgender, gender non-conforming, non-binary, and intersex people often face prejudice, discrimination and humiliation in their everyday lives. They deserve the same dignity and respect as everyone else enjoys, in every area of their lives including being able to use restrooms in which they feel comfortable."
