A trans-identified male in British Columbia is considering filing a human rights complaint after being barred from using a women-only gym.

Brigid Klyne-Simpson recently joined the Bodyworks Fitness gym in the city of Parksville on Vancouver Island. The gym has two locations, one female-only and the other co-ed. Klyne-Simpson, who has been identifying as a woman for the past three years, signed up to use the female-only facility, but after one visit was asked by staff to use the co-ed one in the future.
