Las Vegas Hotel Apologizes for Kicking Out Trans Woman


Yesterday I posted about a trans woman who was harassed and then kicked out of the Las Vegas Cosmopolitan Hotel for using the women's restroom.

The Cosmopolitan has issued an apology and statement about the ugly incident, Las Vegas Weekly reports:

“The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas is committed to maintaining a community that recognizes and values the inherent dignity of every person, by fostering sensitivity, understanding and mutual respect of our guests and employees.

“We sincerely regret any misunderstanding or inappropriate actions that any member of our staff may have taken. And to ensure increased sensitivity within this area, the organization will focus on continued training and on-going awareness initiatives. In addition, we apologize to the individual guest and welcome her back to the resort anytime.”

Additionally, the hotel stated, “We would like to apologize to the LGBT community and anyone concerned and hope to demonstrate our firm dedication to fair and unbiased treatment of all.”
