Last weekend, Emile and her school's slam poetry team went to College Unions Poetry Slam Invitational in Chicago, Illinois.
During a break, Emile stumbled upon a gender neutral bathroom and decided to make some queer magic happen.
For Emile, the access to public bathrooms of choice are a necessary right for this country.
"Personally, I think gender-neutral bathrooms are a necessity," she told Buzzfeed. "Everyone deserves the right to exist in a public space."
