New Montreal City Pool to Have Just One “Gender Neutral” Changing Room
A new public swimming pool in Montreal, Canada will have just one "gender neutral" changing room, eliminating male and female designated facilities. The Rosemont Aquatic Complex, which is set to open next year, announced the new policy on its website.
According to Nathalie Goulet, head of
social inclusion for the executive committee of the City of Montreal, making
boys, girls, men, women, transgender and "non-binary" people all change in the
same room is a benchmark of "social innovation."
