The Sims 4 is going to allow gender-neutral bathrooms in a new update.
The best-selling sandbox game has a new update coming out later this month. Among the many updates to the game will be a gender-neutral bathroom door.
The gender-neutral bathrooms were announced in developer Electronic Arts’ livestream this weekend.
The expansion will also introduce It Gets Better T-shirts and pride gear in game for Pride Month.
The new clothing options will be part of a partnership with the It Gets Better Project, an LGBTQ youth nonprofit organization.
Fans loved the announcement.
Gender neutral bathrooms? On the Sims? A game where you can actually have trans ppl canonically? At least someone cares about us
