LA Fitness denies Public Accommodations to California Transgender woman Yanel Valenzuela
Yanel Valenzuela had been working out at LA Fitness for some time but wanted some advice on how she could fine tune her body. She explained to a employer her transgender status and that's when her troubles began. Even though she presented her drivers license with female indicated and took the extraordinary step of presenting a doctors letter stating she had gender conformation surgery the manager still denied her use of the bathroom.
In California it is against the law a to deny public accommodations access to transgender people.
