In progressive Seattle, a presidential order that public schools give transgender students access to the bathrooms matching their gender identity won't require a shift.
While the debate has reached a fever pitch in other parts of the country, the city's public schools have accommodated transgender students in the bathrooms and locker rooms consistent with their identity since 2012.
It stands in stark contrast to places like North Carolina that recently passed divisive restrictions.
The Seattle school district celebrated the opening of its latest gender-neutral bathroom Tuesday with a large gathering of students and faculty at Nathan Hale High School.
Nearly half of the city's 15 public high schools have restrooms that can be used by people of any gender, with one dating to the 1990s.
To Destin Cramer, 17, the inclusive bathroom is another jolt for a movement in full swing in Seattle and gaining momentum nationally.
Cramer is a transgender student at Nathan Hale who created the gender-neutral bathroom for his senior project.
