Transgender woman told to use club’s male toilets

June 2016

Frieda* is a transgender woman and a member of a golf club.

Frieda had been using the female toilets for several years until she was directed by management to use the men’s toilets.

She tried to resolve the problem with the club’s management team without success.

Frieda made a complaint of transgender discrimination to ADNSW.

At conciliation, the club director agreed to allow Frieda to use the female toilets without restriction and organised training for the staff on anti-discrimination legislation.
