Transgender Woman ‘Told To Use Male Changing Rooms’ To Try On Dress In Debenhams

Lol. A transgender woman said she was left devastated this week after being turned away from female changing rooms and told to ‘use the gents’ (story).

Jay Campbell visited the Debenhams store in Glasgow in a bid to find a dress for her friend’s wedding. However, as she went to try it on she claims she was stopped from entering the cubicle – and told to head downstairs to the men’s section.

The 25-year-old from Carluke, Lanarkshire, added that she walked to the male section ‘crying in shock’ after the exchange.

She has been living as a woman for the last two years, and taking female hormones since the start of the year. (But she lived as a man for 23 years. 2 and 23, 23 is more, so she is still a MAN).

Speaking to the Daily Record, she said: ‘I asked the assistant if the changing room was open and she said, “Yes”. When I went to use it, she stopped me and told me I had to use the gents on the first floor.

‘I told her I was transgender and she still insisted I used the gents. When I got there, the two women were the complete opposite – they were kind and helpful. They asked what was wrong and I told them.

‘They were shocked and told me I should have been allowed to use the changing room up there. They also told me they had been trained in how to deal with these situations. I won’t be spending a single penny in there again.’

Posting about the incident on Facebook, Jay added: ‘I was so upset and sick of having to explain myself.

‘I was about to spend a fair bit of money on the outfit but after being treated like a freak I threw the dress at her.’

A Debenhams spokesperson said: ‘We are sorry for any distress caused to the customer. Debenhams changing rooms are not gender specific.

‘We are currently investigating the incident.’
