Guides allows boys who identify as female to shower with girls

The Girl Guides will allow boys who identify as female to shower with girls, it has emerged.

For the first time, Girlguiding's official guidance instructs guide leaders to allow members who were born male but now identify as female to share changing rooms, toilets and sleeping quarters with girls when away on excursions.

The 107-year-old organisation updated its rules, which apply to members aged from five to 25, to allow transgender girls to "share accommodation with other young members if they wish" and use the same facilities.

Guidance on transgender members was first added in 2015 and updated this year.


There are concerns, however, that sharing accommodation and personal facilities will threaten the safety and privacy of girls, especially as parents of younger members would not be automatically told if their daughter was sharing such facilities.

The guidance states that it is not "best practice" to inform parents that a trans person will be attending a residential event.
