Transgender woman banned from Idaho grocery store

April 15, 2013


A transgender woman was banned from a western Idaho grocery store after customers complained she used the women’s restroom, police in Lewiston said.

Ally Robledo, 25, of Lewiston, identifies herself as female but has not yet had gender reassignment surgery. Robledo, who was born Alberto, said she was leaving a Rosauers supermarket in Lewiston late on April 8 when police officers gave her paperwork informing her that she had a “no trespassing” order against her for using the women’s restroom.

“They pretty much just came up and said, ‘OK, you’re not allowed at our store anymore,’” Robledo told the Lewiston Tribune.
