LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- An Iowa high school has added two gender-neutral bathrooms.

Leaders said they did so to support the school's LGBT community.

The single-unit bathrooms are inside the school's library.

A student group says it will allow transgender people to not feel excluded.

"A lot of people don't agree with transgender, so to say, so I feel like it's just different," said Tyciera Wells, a Junior at Roosevelt.

The high school is the first in the city of Des Moines to offer gender-neutral bathrooms.
