SB 1297 would expand the definition of “indecent exposure” to include incidents occurring in a restroom, locker room, dressing room, or shower, designated for single-sex, multi-person use, if the offender is a member of the opposite sex than the sex designated for use.

The bill would prohibit any medical, psychiatric, or psychological diagnosis of gender dysphoria, gender confusion, or similar conditions, from serving as a defense to the offense of indecent exposure.

If passed, transgender individuals would be at risk of conviction for using public accommodations that conform to their gender identity.
