Gay male parents cited as beneficiaries of ‘Diaper Changing’ bill

D.C. Council member Brianne Nadeau

D.C. Council member Brianne Nadeau (D-Ward 1) has said a bill she introduced last month that would require government buildings and businesses, including restaurants and bars, to make diaper changing tables available to both men and women would benefit gay men with children.

Nadeau said the bill is aimed, in part, at addressing concerns raised by men who are in same-sex or opposite-sex relationships with young children and male single parents who find that very few men’s bathrooms in public places have diaper changing tables

In its summary statement, the bill says it would require “Diaper-Changing Accommodations be available for use by all genders in a D.C. owned or occupied building that includes at least one toilet facility that is open to the public.
