PARK CITY, Utah (AP) _ What's believed to be Utah's first gender neutral restroom has opened at Park City High School.

Student council member Adam Snyder says he came up with the idea after reading that colleges have such restrooms for transgender students.

He told KSL ( ) high schools also have transgender students and he wanted a restroom where they would feel more comfortable.

Snyder, with support from the Gay Straight Alliance, took the proposal to the Park City School Board.

Park City High Principal Bob O'Connor says he doesn't want any student feeling fearful about using a restroom.

He says other than a few critical online comments about the new restroom, students and staff appear very accepting of the new facility.
