Vocal in its condemnation of LGBTQI discrimination, the American Studies Association has offered gender neutral bathrooms at its Annual Meeting since 2003.

Gender Neutral bathrooms create affirming and safe spaces for transgender, gender non-conforming, and intersex (TGNCI) persons who are often elided in everyday society. Gender Neutral bathrooms not only affirm the multiple self-expressions of gender identity but also provide accessible spaces for parents with differently-gendered children and disabled people with differently gendered attendants. Gender Neutral bathrooms are marked and can be found on the main conference floor.
