If you’ve ever waited impatiently for a single-person bathroom that corresponds to your gender while the other one was empty, you may have wondered, “Why are these labeled at all?!”

That won’t be the case in Denver anymore.
As part of a set of amendments to the international building code, most of which dealt with fairly technical matters, the Denver City Council unanimously approved a change Monday that requires all single-person bathrooms in the city to be gender-neutral.
