Hersheypark will allow transgender visitors and employees to use the bathrooms they gender-identify with as state governments debate the issue nationwide.
The Sweetest Place on Earth said in a statement Friday that Hersheypark visitors and employees will be able to use the restrooms that match the gender they identify with or use the family restroom. The announcement comes amid a national debate on whether or not to allow transgender people to use the bathrooms of their choice.
Hersheypark spokeswoman Kathy Burrows said the policy is a continuation of what has already been in place at the park.
"For decades, Hersheypark has been dedicated to the safety and security of our guest and employees. It is foundational to our brand," Burrows said in a prepared statement.
