The Obama administration on Wednesday announced that it will be installing a gender-neutral bathroom, thereby keeping in line with its own executive order prohibiting discrimination against LGBT individuals.

The restroom will be located in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, a White House spokesperson told Politico.

“The White House allows staff and guests to use restrooms consistent with their gender identity, which is in keeping with the administration’s existing legal guidance on this issue and consistent with what is required by the executive order that took effect today for federal contractors,” the spokesperson said.

The move to install gender-neutral bathrooms comes in the aftermath of Obama’s executive order from June, which prohibited discrimination against federal workers on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity.

Don’t tell Tucker Carlson.
