RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Federal buildings nationwide must now let transgender employees and visitors us the restroom that matches their gender identity.

The decision came down from the general services administration, which oversees 9,200 Federal buildings including courthouses and social security offices nationwide.

The GSA put out a bulletin stating Federal employees and their guests are allowed to use bathrooms according to their gender identity. The bulletin says that denying that access would be considered sex discrimination.
