A trans-identifying biological male is suing a yoga studio in New York City for $5 million after being forced to use the men’s locker room.
Ali Miles, who also goes by Dylan Miles, is in “the process of transitioning into [a] woman” and wears women’s clothing.
Miles claims to be banned from using the women’s changing rooms and bathrooms by the management at Hot Yoga Chelsea in New York after ignoring requests not to use the women’s locker room.
This is the third gender-identity discrimination Miles has filed in the city in the last 13 months, the New York Post reported.
As The Daily Mail reported:
Miles, originally from Arizona, turned up to the Manhattan studio before the 5 pm class and wanted to get changed in the women’s locker room.
But her presence was met with complaints, and she was told to stop using the facilities and leave.
“Female patrons … complained and yelled at Miles about Miles’ presence and use of the single-sex locker room and bathroom labeled women, and they demanded Miles leave and cease using the facilities,” the lawsuit states.
Witnesses described Miles’ behavior as disturbing, adding that the trans-identifying male’s genitals were hanging out in the locker room of the Yoga studio.
“We have other transgender people [at Chelsea Hot Yoga], we have several trans women and several trans men, and there’s never been a problem. … it’s this individual,” one woman told the New York Post.
“This person who claims to be a transitioning woman came into the female locker room, number one, in male shorts that were down to his knees.”
“Although there could be some hormonal addition because his bust is bigger than mine, he did not wear any feminine top to cover his bust.”
“He also de-robed, and he is a full male. There’s 150% man. There were things hanging out,” they added.
The witness added:
“It wasn’t even like he was just standing there. He was crouched down on the floor in front of the shower stalls.”
“It was very uncomfortable for one of the women that was in there, and she was completely naked.”
“This person started in immediately with reciting the law, and why would you do that? “
“Because this person could see that there were other women, amongst myself, that were notably upset …This person, I don’t know if they come to these places to try to start a problem or whatever.”
As The Mail further reported:
Miles was also represented by lawyer Peter Sverd in her case against Planet Fitness, where she was allegedly escorted out of the women’s locker room and a homeless shelter where she claimed she was assaulted by a security guard.
Both incidents are said to have happened in the Bronx.
Places of ‘public accommodation’ are required to allow visitors to use the bathroom, which aligns with their gender identity under a 2016 New York City law.
Or they have to provide single-occupancy toilets for ‘all genders’.
Businesses in New York are said to be doing their best to avoid any issues that arise over bathroom use.
Real estate property manager Anthony Mignano, who is not involved with the lawsuit, said: “We’ve been informed by our lawyers to change everything … everything has to be a neutral bathroom now to avoid it.”
While another expert claims transgender bathroom and locker room claims could hurt businesses in the city with litigation in a similar way to the Americans with Disabilities Act.
It led to hundreds of lawsuits, including some from claimants dubbed ‘professional plaintiffs’ who filed dozens of claims.
